DEALING WITH DEATH
Death is never easy. We all struggle to make sense of it. It is difficult to process because we aren’t designed to die. We were designed to live at peace in a garden, forever.
The promises of Eternal Life are found throughout the Scripture. This retreat will allow you the time and space to contemplate these promises. Come, rest, and think on eternal things. Process in a safe place, allowing the truth of Scripture to inform your thoughts about death.
Spiritual Director and Retreat Leader, Lisa Marion, first experienced the sting of death at the age of 9, when her grandmother was violently murdered. An event that forever changed the dynamics in her family and their lives. Since that time, she has buried her mother, two uncles, an aunt, a niece, her husband, and countless friends.
Well acquainted with death and the process one must journey through to find peace, join Lisa in this uniquely restful opportunity. Whether you’re struggling with processing the death of a loved one, or your own death, come and find answers in God’s promises. Please note, during this retreat, Lisa will be available for private Spiritual Direction.
