Embracing Wonder: A Retreat

Embracing Wonder: A Retreat

The Wisdom Way: A Christian Path to Wholeness

In turbulent times, we all hunger for wholeness, connection, community, and compassionate engagement. The Christian Wisdom tradition offers insights and practices to help draw the world of crying need and awesome complexity into our heart and center.

Using presentation, guided meditation, centering practices, sacred listening and sharing, this retreat explores how wonder widens our hearts, opens our minds, and compels us to compassionate encounters.

Sign up at the St. Paul Information Center or call the church office at 459-1595.  
The $15.00 fee includes lunch, snacks, and programming. Guests are welcome!

Enjoy an opportunity for learning, self-reflection, fellowship, and renewal as our presenter, Joe Grant, invites participants to embrace Wonder, Woe, and Wellbeing on three separate Saturdays

Each retreat is connected to the others, though they can be experienced separately.

Embracing Woe – March 7, during Lent   •   Embracing Wellbeing – April 25
