2022 Spring Retreat: Spirit Rising "Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit." - Galatians 5:25
OVERVIEW Join us for our annual (though it's been a few years with the pandemic) Spring Retreat, Friday evening, June 10, through Saturday evening, June 11, at Mariawald Renewal Center in Reading. As in previous years, participants have the option to stay an additional night on their own (through June 12).
On the heels of Pentecost (June 5), we'll gather to claim the divine Spirit rising and moving in our midst - nurturing our own spirits to rise with it out of the wilderness of pandemic and all that diminishes abundance. Through singing, movement, group sharing and personal reflection to open and ground us, we'll be led by Rev. Rhetta Morgan, an interfaith minister, singing healer and spiritual activist.
PLEASE NOTE that the retreat is intended for adults (and perhaps older youth if interested). We do hope to offer future retreat experiences for all ages - together and separately!
COST Including lodging and three meals (Saturday breakfast, lunch and dinner):
$90 for a single room (plus an additional $65 if you opt to stay over Saturday night*)
$80 for a double room (you may request roommate; plus an additional $65 if you opt to stay over Saturday night*)
* includes Sunday brunch if fewer than six people stay an additional night; includes breakfast and lunch if six or more stay (check out by 3 pm)
Please don't let cost be the reason you don't participate! Scholarships are available upon request - contact Pastor Tim if you need assistance.
TRANSPORTATION We will coordinate ride-sharing among participants. When you register, you can indicate whether you can provide or need a ride.
REGISTRATION & PAYMENT Click here to register (registration deadline is May 1; payment deadline is May 15).
