THE MAGNIFICENT DEFEAT
May 30 - June 2, 2013
$290 Overnight (includes all meals)
Come join us – a bond of brothers willing to risk the journey into greater wholeness and holiness. Holiness does not refer to being "perfect" or otherworldly. It refers to being completely and authentically who we were created to be – fully human and fully alive. Men who realize that this adventure of life was never meant to be traveled alone. Men who long to know God and know the true gift of themselves. A life-giving gift worthy of offering for the healing of the world. The world is dying for the gift of such men.
This retreat will be a guided contemplative pilgrimage of the soul. It is not for the weak-of-heart or spiritual voyeurs. It is for men who want to engage in the process of spiritual transformation. It is an invitation to discover a Love that refuses to let us remain less than who we were created to be – "the full reflection of God as only we [sic] can be". A Love that is willing to risk our defeat in order to offer us our true self and God's true self.
The patriarch Jacob will be our guide on this pilgrimage of becoming more.
