You Who Are Weary, Come Home: A Contemplative Retreat in the Manner of Friends

You Who Are Weary, Come Home: A Contemplative Retreat in the Manner of Friends

November 7-10, 2019, at the Weber Retreat and Conference Center in Adrian, Michigan.

More than ever, in these days of fast-paced living, multi-tasking, and continual connectiv­ity, we need times apart – times of “retirement” as early Friends used to say. We need time for com­munion with God and the refreshment of the soul.

Come and simply be with God. Attend to the divine stirrings of the soul, opening to grace. All are welcome; it is not necessary that you be a Quaker to participate.

Offered through The School of the Spirit, this retreat will be led by April Allison and Sharon Frame of the Red Cedar Friends Meeting in Lansing, Michigan. Jim Herr and Cindy Herr will participate in leadership as part of the mentorship program.

REGISTRATIONS ARE OPEN: For more information, or to register.
