For August’s guided silent retreat, we will open ourselves to the life and spirituality of Aidan of Lindisfarne (d. 651), who said: “Leave me alone with God as much as may be. As the tide draws the waters close in upon the shore, make me an island, set apart, alone with you, God, holy to you. Then with the turning of the tide prepare me to carry your presence to the busy world beyond, the world that rushes in on me till the waters come again and fold me back to you.” Join us for this time of being alone with God as a way to prepare ourselves to be God’s presence in the world.
There will be plenty of time for reading and reflection, prayerful walking, and space for prayerful art. Participants will receive handouts with readings and prayers inspired by Aidan, for us as lectio divina as well as reflective questions. (Aidan will be one of our primary spiritual guides on our October pilgrimage, and Lindisfarne is final destination before returning home).
A hot lunch is provided. To register click here.
The cost of the Retreat is $25 and includes the price of lunch. We don’t want anyone to miss out because of pricing. Contact Haley for information on scholarships at email@example.com.
