Why we need Rest and Resurrection: Upcoming Retreat for Young Adults and Young Professionals
We are, each of us, wired for connection and community. My fellow 20somethings, 30somethings, Millennials and Gen Xers, those searching for affirming Christian community, young adults and young professionals, we all need some Rest and a lot of Resurrection these days.
That is the focus of this upcoming retreat, to rest in the unconditional love of God, spend time unwinding in nature, and to look for signs of resurrection in our lives and in our communities after such a challenging year. Let's support each other in the kin-dom of God and care for one another's spiritual and emotional health.
Our keynote guest is a visual artist, author, and engaging speaker. You may have noticed his work recently along Jackson Avenue for the Stations in the Street installation. Scott Erickson will lead Friday night's reflection with his engaging, multimedia style. Juxtaposing story-teaching, participation, humor, and image curation, Scott will walk with us through resisting the overwhelming voice of Giving Up in our lives. His “Say Yes: A Liturgy of Not Giving Up on Yourself” is a multi-sensory experience that reveals this moment not as an ending but as a sacred doorway into a much deeper invitation to our hopes, vocation, and our existence itself.
A worthwhile weekend away means different things for different personalities, that's why there are so many options available to us at Solomon Center: the hiking trails, outdoor pool, disc golf course, as well as the open air chapel for your yoga practice are all available. Take the time to explore, take a breath, and choose your own adventure.
The food is delicious, the fellowship authentic, and the fun is ready to be enjoyed. Tell your friends! Questions? contact Mother Jane-Allison Wiggin at email@example.com or 504.295.1375.
