Year-End Retreat: Awareness, Attentiveness and Acceptance


Led by David and Trish Johnson

We are being given another year, hopefully, of living in the Light. Whatever happened in 2018, let our hearts be opened so each of us may better understand and undertake what God is asking of us in 2019. The course will explore Quaker writings, the Bible and your Inner Guide for ‘walking in the Light’ with times for learning, sharing experience, personal prayer & reflection, and a range of exercises to open up spiritual space. The retreat will include an afternoon and overnight period of silence midway through, and is open for anyone from mid-teens onwards in age.
