About the Retreat:
Come away by yourselves to a secluded place and rest a while. (Mark 6:31)
Sabbath Rest is one of the great gifts of God to His children, yet the forces that drive us toward busy-ness can be powerful and overwhelming. Join us as Catherine M. Kelly leads us on a two-day retreat on the need for Sabbath-keeping, its vital relationship to self-care, and ways to incorporate this practice into our busy lives. Catherine will introduce the scriptural and historical background on Sabbath-keeping as well as contemporary spiritual writers’ suggestions on the meaning and practice of Sabbath for modern-day believers. The retreat includes ample opportunity to rest in the Lord, quiet time for prayer and reflection, take-home prayer materials, optional small group faith sharing, and optional one-on-one spiritual accompaniment with the director.
