As most of you know, I love retreat ministry! It’s hard to believe it, but this year will be my 20th year giving retreats. Throughout the years, there is a something I have noticed. Not everyone’s life circumstances allow them to go away for a retreat weekend or even for a day of reflection.
I am so excited to announce my first online busy person’s retreat! It will take place May 15th-18th. A busy person’s retreat combines my love of retreat ministry with my passion for spiritual direction. Because let’s face it– don’t we all need a some focused time with God and a little support from another person when it comes to growing our relationship with God?
My hope is this retreat will offer those of you who cannot take time away from your home life or work life an opportunity to deepen your faith life from right where you are. Space is very limited for this first retreat as I will be the only spiritual director working this one. But never fear, I’ve got a few more of these retreats planned for 2017 where I will be expanding the number of spiritual directors so I can offer this ministry to more people.
In order to participate, you need to:
- Have an open heart
- Desire to grow deeper in God
- The ability to use Skype, Google Chat, or FaceTime video
I hope you will consider joining me for the first Online Busy Person’s Retreat! For those of you who cannot join us, please keep all who will make this retreat in your prayers!
