Theme: WHO DO YOU SAY THAT I AM? A retreat for the beginning of Lent. In these turbulent times, the Holy Season of Lent comes as an invitation to go slower, listen deeply and open more fully to God's presence in our lives and world. Our focus in this retreat will be Jesus's question: "Who do you say that I am?" This question startled his followers and continues to challenge us today. However, we could just as easily turn that question around, letting it become our own heart prayer addressed to Jesus, the Christ. Who do you say that I am? What is my truest, most authentic self in God? The winter silence, the gathered praying community and a sacred iconic image of Christ will support our desire to draw closer to the living Presence.
