"Chosen, Blessed, Broken, Given"-Henri Nouwen on Our Life As the Beloved - ONLINE ZOOM RETREAT
Friday, October 16, 2020 - Sunday, October 18, 2020
With Nouwen as our inspiration, we will explore together the profound dynamics of our spiritual life as God's beloved---chosen and blessed before the foundation of the world while at the same time representing a life that is broken and given as bread for others. Through a combination of guided teaching, personal reflection and communal interaction, we hope to imbibe in us what it truly means to be, to become, and to live our life as the Beloved amidst our increasingly challenging world.
