A Cedar Park Day Retreat on the beautiful A Rocha centre grounds.
All who desire to know God more are welcome.
Firsthand knowledge of God is the most
important thing we can pursue in this life.
– Rob Des Cotes.
The format of the retreat includes silent prayer (collectively and individually), prayerful worship in song, teaching and reflections on seeking God. Topics include:
• recognizing seeking God as the ultimate vocation of our souls
• the paradox of seeking God
• the role of love and faith in seeking God
• impediments to seeking God
• discovering our true identity in seeking God
The presentation of these reflections is interactive. Comments and questions are encouraged. There is also further opportunity to interact with other participants in small groups, on breaks or around lunch shared together.
A significant focus of the retreat is the movement from desire to action in seeking God as expressed in the text, Psalm 27:8.
“Come,” my heart says, “seek his face!”
Your face, LORD, do I seek.
There will be spaces of time throughout the day to “practice,” being with God in silence. We prayerfully trust and presume God’s gracious presence and movement within each one of us, as we attend to him in the community of other seekers. During the breaks we will be able to spend time with God in creation. Lunch, coffee/tea, and snacks will be included.
Ruth Des Cotes & Paul Woodyard of Imago Dei
