Theme: OUT OF THE DEPTHS I CRY TO YOU. These words of the psalmist well describe the longing of prayer in times of transition, stress, grief and fear. In this autumn season of change and apparent decay, Earth’s own rhythms can help us open more fully to embrace our struggles as well as the hope of divine possibilities. Deep calls to deep. We dwell in the heart of the Beloved, One who listens, comforts and offers guidance. Let us come together in the holy silence of retreat and spiritual community, a safe place to pray with our deepest longings. Embraced by Love, we can find refreshment of hope and healing strength.
Leader: Ann Dean is a spiritual director and Program Director at the Shalem Institute for Spiritual Formation. A member of the Dayspring Retreat Mission Group, she has been leading retreats for 25 years.
