Come to this special offering of a One Day Spiritual Retreat at Camp Grafton!
Could you use…..
…. a day to get away from your regular routine?
….a day to be in the beauty of nature in the company of others?
….a day to just ‘be’ and not have to ‘do?’
…..a day to be quiet for a while to sense the presence of God?
If so, then come out to KUC’s Spiritual Retreat on Saturday September 21 at Camp Grafton on the Shuswap Lake. Receive the gift of a day to nurture body, mind and soul.
Our theme is “Be Still and Know that I am God”
The day is spacious and includes:
9:30 – Gathering with refreshments and conversation
10:00 – Welcome, introducing the day, worship
10:40 – A nature walk with some silence and time for reflection
12:00 – Lunch
12:45 – An introduction to contemplative prayer
1:15 – Some silence and time for reflection
3:00 – Worship
3:30 – Retreat concludes – either head home or stay longer at Grafton
5:00 – Homeward bound
This retreat will be somewhat different than previous KUC retreats. Rev. Bruce will be offering leadership. The format will include some silence for prayer, walking, writing, art work, or other ways of coming closer to the divine. There will also be singing, laughter, small group discussion and eating a great lunch together that we don’t have to make! At 3:30 the retreat will conclude. You can head home or you are welcome to stay at Grafton for some more rest and relaxation. Perhaps go for a swim if the weather permits. Or, just set out a lawn chair and do some reading or visiting. By 5:00 we will close up the Camp and be on our way after a refreshing day. We would love to have you join us.
