Retreat at Parish of the Messiah, Saturday December 8
Our neighbor, the Parish of the Messiah in Auburndale, has invited interested members of St. Mary’s to a retreat on Saturday, December 8. The retreat is titled “Living Water for Deep Thirsts”.
“When our bodies are thirsty, we take care of that need with something to drink, and we are satisfied until thirst returns. However, our minds, our hearts, our spirits know other and differing thirsts – deeper thirsts that demand more than a refreshing drink. We experience those deeper thirsts personally, and we also recognize many kinds of unmet spiritual thirstiness all around us.
“One rich image in sacred tradition is the promised gift of ‘living water’ – a gift that will truly satisfy those deeper thirsts.
“We will share a day together
– To reflect upon those deeper thirsts we and others experience
– To contemplate this gift of ‘living water’ and its richness of meaning – for others and for ourselves.
“We will help each other to discern and to receive the refreshment that comes from many holy wells.
“All are invited to be a welcome part of this day’s journey – parish members, friends, and those who are spiritual seekers.”
A light breakfast and beverages will be provided. Bring a brown bag lunch.
