You are warmly invited to our 8th almost-annual “Faithbooking” Retreat.
This is a beautiful time of the year to begin to ponder some changes you might want to make in this coming year and this could be the perfect ‘get-a-way’ opportunity. "Gift" yourself this special time away. You are worth it! If you’ve attended before, you know how priceless this time away is. For those of you who have never been, let us explain what a “Faithbooking” retreat is.
Faithbooking at its core means creating a tangible expression of one’s faith! Some choose to create a chronological scrapbook album in which they record their faith journey. Some also have a notebook where they record meaningful phrases, scripture passages, and other words that inspire them. All are continual works in progress.
-journaling about times when you felt touched by God,
-writing a letter to someone to thank them for when they were “God-like” to you,
-knitting a prayer shawl,
-painting a picture,
-creating faith-related cards,
-collecting your favorite scriptures into a notebook
-gathering photos of sacred places
BUT even before you can create anything tangible – you need to take time to ponder or meditate on the many blessings in your life. When was the last time you took that time – to just gather thoughts on the workings of God in your life. This retreat can simply be your opportunity to be present and LISTEN to God.
Rose Folsom will be leading us in several meditations on this year’s theme, “BELONGING” These will provide an excellent opportunity for reflection.
You simply provide yourself an opportunity to BE in God’s presence. There are no expectations – no “supply list,” no directions, no requirements. It is a weekend of your own design.
We hope you will prayerfully consider joining us on March 1-3, 2022 at San Damiano Spiritual Life Center in White Post, Virginia (near Winchester, VA). The retreat center is simply beautiful and a wonderful place to be quiet.
