Led by the Rev. Dr. Margaret Bullitt-Jonas on Zoom (free).
Many feel strong winds blowing against us: the winds of white Christian nationalism, the winds of war, the winds of climate change. Like the disciples in their small boat, we may feel "battered by the waves" (Matthew 14:24). This retreat is a time to gather to pray for the courage to meet Christ in rough seas, the serenity to trust in Christ's presence and the boldness to bear public witness to Christ's love. The time will include silence and guided meditation, presentations and small group conversation, and free time for solitary prayer and a contemplative walk outdoors. This online retreat will be held the day before Faiths for Climate Justice launches a week of faith-based climate events (Oct. 2-9). Consider planning or joining an event, so that prayers can be offered for you during the retreat.
