Facilitator: Joel Warne: Seasons of the Soul: Resurrection Rhythms in Life Today
Unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies
it remains a single seed, but if it dies, it yields a rich harvest!
Jesus, John 12
Changes…transitions…release of the old to make way for God’s new thing.
In our lives we experience lots of unexpected “deaths” – of dreams, assumptions, relationships, well-intended efforts, even precious ministries. While painful, the passing away of the old holds the seeds of abundant new life.
The Seasons of the Soul retreat explores the pattern of six “seasons” in Jesus’ life that correspond with seasons of our soul. They are doorways to joyfully embracing the many transitions of life that invite a new and fruitful future. We’ll listen together for God in our seeds of change, and the invitation to new power and meaning in next things.
