As the meaning of and way we retreat has shifted due to the pandemic, we are here to connect with you virtually and bring retreat to you. Below you will find portions of recently recorded online mini-retreats. Let these teachings and reflections guide you as you retreat where you are. Thank you to those who have joined us and we look forwarding to “seeing” many of you again soon.
Simplifying Our Lives and Living Spaces
With all the time that we are spending at home in this pandemic, simplifying our lives and living spaces has real appeal. But how do we do this well and how does it relate to our life of faith?
Led by ELCA Pastor Becca Erhlich and author of the blog, “Christian Minimalism,” attendees learned that the key to an abundant life oftentimes means living with less.
Daring to Pray in the Time of COVID
What does it mean to pray in the midst of a pandemic? How do we continue to commune with God – and each other – in prayer in the middle of so much upheaval, anxiety, and loss in our world, and our own lives?
Attendees of the day retreat “Dare to Pray: Day Lenten Journey” that took place earlier this year, joined Theresa Latini, Executive Director of Mount Olivet Conference & Retreat Center, virtually for this mini-retreat to reflect on the meaning of prayer in our lives right now.
