Tom and I head out this morning for another time of retreat, so it seemed an appropriate time to let you know about our upcoming retreat Rest in the Moment, to be held here in Seattle September 26th. Many of us have relocated, are starting new jobs or a new school year and life can get pretty frantic, so give yourself a break, rest in the moment with us, refresh yourself and reset the rhythm of your life.
Facilitator: Christine Sine
Where: Mustard Seed House, Seattle
When: September 26 9:30- 1pm
As we race into the school year and gallop towards Christmas does your life become too busy and distracted to enjoy intimacy with God? Join us as we invite the spirit of God to stir our imaginations and guide us into a rhythm of rest and restoration that will sustain us in the months to come.
The pause God calls us to is one of enjoyment and satisfaction, a rest in which we hear God’s affirmation and pleasure in us, a pause in which we hear God’s voice say, “Well done, good and faithful servant.” Laying aside our work and busyness to pause, and focus on the presence of the living God is a wonderful way to centre our lives on the restfulness of mind and spirit that God intends for us.
Through prayer, reflection and creativity we will explore how to incorporate this type of restful pause into our days, our weeks and our year. Create your own spiritual rhythm and establish practices that strengthen your faith and draw you closer to the One in whom we live and move and have our being.
