Slow Down! Retreat Days with Sandy Prather
Feeling like you need a time out? Busy lives often leave us feeling tired, lacklustre and spiritually empty. A Slow Down Day is your opportunity to rest your body and refresh your spirit. Each day consists of thought-provoking presentations on a spiritual topic combined with ample time for personal reflection and prayer; small group faith sharing is an option. Come slow down with us by following the Star to an oasis of peace.
Oct 19: ‘I Will Give You Rest’: Turning to our Faith to Find Balance in Our Lives Do you often feel harried and overloaded with the proverbial mountain of work waiting for you? Do feelings of stress and fatigue mark your days? We know we should take better care of ourselves but somehow we don’t seem to manage it. Our Christian faith tells us that Jesus doesn’t want us stressed and burnt out: “Come to me all you who are heavily burdened,” he invited, “and I will give you rest.” During this Slow Down Day, we will take ‘time out’ to explore how our faith calls us to manage our mountain of stress. We will look at some of the underlying reasons we allow ourselves to become overburdened and explore some concrete strategies for self-care.
