Come Away for A While: Jesus’ Wisdom for Spiritual Leaders

Monday, March 7, 2022

9 am – 12 noon CT
ONLINE Event – Link will be shared with attendees the day before the event.

Who should attend:
All those desiring to grow closer to God, spiritual directors, pastors, and ministry leaders
What you’ll learn: Learn to settle into some practices that will help us remain, dwell, tarry stay, abide, return, linger, cling – language lacing through all of Scripture that invites us limited, fragile, incomplete, and beloved creatures into God’s well-being and refreshment.

Jesus’ disciples knew something about the demands of ministry and the frantic pace at which their fruitful work often took place (in some instances, they didn’t even have time to eat). But Jesus knew the human limitations to which His followers – and He Himself – needed to pay attention; and ministry leaders and spiritual directors, tending to the flourishing and well-being of others, need to heed His wisdom. 

In the midst of the high-energy push from Christmas through Easter, we’ll pause for a morning together to settle into some practices that will help us remain, dwell, tarry, stay, abide, return, linger, cling –“Coming away for a while” is neither a luxury nor a reward for getting our work done. Rather, it’s a deeply human and spiritually necessary practice that strengthens us, guides and gives life to our work, and creates space to be rooted and grounded in God, who takes such delight in us.
