RETREAT AT THE DRC: “The Kingdom of Heaven: Uncovering God’s Plan for Us” with Rev. Basil Burns PhD., Spiritual Director. Friday, November 3 at 7:30 PM through to Sunday, November 5, 2017 at 1:00 PM.
Jesus preached about the “Kingdom of God” or “The Kingdom of Heaven” throughout his ministry. There is hardly a more central theme in the whole Gospel message. At the beginning of his ministry, we hear, “The time is fulfilled and the Kingdom of God is at hand! Repent and believe in the Gospel!” (Mark 1:15). At the end of his earthly ministry we read, “After he had suffered…he appeared to them for forty days speaking about the Kingdom of God” (Acts 1:3).
What did Jesus mean? Might there be a key to open up our spiritual lives within this “Kingdom teaching”? You are invited to spend a weekend in respectful silence praying with, and learning about this beautiful mystery. This is an adult event.
Cost is $150 for 2 nights of live in (accommodations and meals), or $90 for meals (with no accommodations). There will be no supper provided on Friday evening.
Register by NOON October 31, 2017.
SPACE IS LIMITED. Registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis. There are 16 single rooms available and 3 double rooms. No more than 40 people will be accommodated to keep the retreat meditative and small enough to take place at the Domano Renewal Centre. Look forward to seeing you there!
