“Retreat in order to advance”– Trevor Hudson
Upon leaving a retreat, one often has a desire to continue on the journey in one’s day-to-day life. Jesus invites us to “learn the unforced rhythms of grace” (Matthew 11:28-30 The Message).
Listening Groups +−
It is often helpful to get together with others with whom we can share our journey.
Listening groups meet to pray together, share their stories and listen to each other. The focus of a listening group is to create a safe space to share in the life of Christ together.
Spiritual Direction +−
During retreats, we become aware of movements in our inner person. Spiritual direction is “help given by one Christian to another which enables that person to pay attention to God’s personal communication to him or her, to respond to this personally communicating God, to grow in intimacy with this God, and to live out the consequences of the relationship.” (William A. Barry and William J. Connolly, The Practice of Spiritual Direction)
