God in Deep Time – Online Eco-Theology retreat

April 22, 2020 - May 16, 2020

Does being in grip of a world-wide viral infection require us to take a deeper look at the impacts humans have on Earth? Does it matter in the whole scope of the universe that we cause suffering and devastation on this one planet?

When we find ourselves unable…

Ecotheology Retreat #2 – God as Wholeness

June 20, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Just as the viral pandemic provided a mirror in which to discover “God in Deep Time,” our first eco-theology retreat of the year, so the unmasking of deep-seated racism becomes the backdrop for our second retreat: “God as Wholeness: ‘All Creation Groans.’” Since a Christian view of God requires that we live with Love as the crucible of all action, we are convinced of the need for a radical re-ordering of our inner lives as we find ourselves part of…

Advent retreat – Seeking God’s Face.

December 5, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

“Restore us, O God; let your face shine, that we may be saved.” (Ps. 80: 3, 7, 19) This year has challenged everyone. We ask ourselves: where is God? Fortunately, during Advent and Christmas we glimpse different angles to view the mystery of God. In the beginning of Advent God seems hidden and we long for God’s face to be revealed to us.
