Tending Your Soul Retreat – September 18

Making Space for God and You

(Note: Tending the Soul in-person retreats are currently planned for the Twin Cities location of Christos only. However, those outside of the area may access the retreats online via Zoom.)

Come be refreshed. Let God nourish you in the midst of our guided quiet retreats. Each retreat will include opening and closing prayer, three short talks, and three 75–90-minute spaces with suggested materials for personal reflection. Walk the labyrinth and the trails or settle inside. These retreats are for anyone who longs to be open and available to God’s presence, love and invitations. We will abide by any Covid restrictions that are appropriate. Please bring a bag lunch. Limited to 25 in-person participants.  You can also access this event online via Zoom.  Fee $40

What’s Your Story?  Embracing Your True Self and Living into the Fullness of God
Facilitator: Heidi Lender
We are made perfect in the image of God and created for a relationship with God and each other.  We are unique human beings with gifts and God’s true essence inside of us.  This is our true self, the person God created us to be.  In the midst of life, childhood wounds, and our deep desire for love, belonging, and connection, we unknowingly forget our true selves and begin to live a false narrative of who we think we are until it no longer serves us or our relationships well and we want more from life.  Wherever we are on this spiritual journey, we are invited to think about our story, come back home, embrace our true selves, deepen our relationship with God and each other, and live into the fullness of God.
