"The glory that you have given me I have given them, so that they may be one, as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become completely one, so that the world may know that you have sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me."

RETREAT THEME

 

Jesus’ deepest desire for his disciples was the transmission of his own personal experience of oneness with God and oneness with all things.  He desires for us to experience and to live in this awareness of being One – a state which transcends all identifications in personality and tribe and finds rest in that profoundly silent place in our soul where God dwells. 


What would be the implications if we consent to this Oneness? How does it change our identity, our sense of who we are?  How would it change our daily living – our conversations, the organization of our day, our focus at work, our citizenship, our relationships, and our prayer life?

Join us for a weekend of silence, Centering Prayer, and a deepening consent to God’s presence and transforming action.
