Kairos: Silence, Contemplation, and Scripture
Jul 26-29, 2018: Thursday evening through Sunday noon.
A spiritual retreat based on the monastic practice of worshiping, working, and studying while experiencing the dynamic of solitude and community living.
The term kairos (καιρός) is an ancient Greek noun describing an opportune and decisive moment; a combination of time and place that generates the opportune environment for actions, words, and/or movements. This retreat aims to create such a unique space for spiritual growth by combining key practices from Quaker and other faith traditions. This kairos is rooted in meeting for worship and worship sharing, lectio divina (divine reading), silence, community, work, study, and celebration. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in contemplative praying of the Scriptures as they experience the deep practice of worship sharing.
This retreat is designed for nurturing and embracing daily life with courage, simplicity, gratitude, hope, and a deep sense of connection.
