Community: Going Deeper With Others


As you continue your journey into Christ-centered 3-C contemplative activism, consider Stepping Stone Four: attending one of our Soul Encounter retreats.

Jesus of Nazareth said…

I came so (you) can have real and eternal life, more and better life than (you) ever dreamed of. (John 10:10 MsgB)

…and then the Master asked a few questions, followed by His Great Invitation…

Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to Me. Get away with Me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with Me and work with Me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with Me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly. (Matthew 11: 28-30 MsgB)

We hear Jesus’ Invitation, yet in all the busy-ness of our stress-filled lives, we fail to take the time to get-away with Jesus so we can learn His unforced rhythms of grace, allowing Him to teach us how to live freely and lightly.

A Soul Encounter Retreat is an opportunity for you to step away from your busy-ness and respond to Jesus’ Great Invitation. Soul Encounter is a guided time of retreat so God can re-fresh, re-charge, and re-fuel you and your daily life in Christ.

I must listen to my life and soul and try to understand what it is truly about – quite apart from what I would like it to be about – or my life will never represent anything real in the world, no matter how earnest my intentions. Parker Palmer

Here’s some quotes from those who attended recent retreats…

“…the day was very enlightening and refreshing.  Through light direction by Marty and Sandy, we were able to come to a place where the Spirit could bring truth about our current condition and the direction that the Lord is leading.  It was encouraging on many levels and I would highly recommend it for people at any stage of their walk.  There is no doubt that Jesus was the leader of the day and was present and active in a very real way.”

“…we got a taste of Jesus.  When we get quiet it opens up space for Him to speak to us.”

“…very helpful and revealing at the same time. (God) revealed to me some of my strengths and I was encouraged to use (those strengths) even more…I was blessed through this day.”

Take a look at this amazing story of one man’s story of transformation as he learned to slow down his life, walking at Godspeed rather than his own hurried pace…
