Join us for our annual young adult gathering — a space for reconnecting with God, friends, and your own story. This year, we will explore creativity as an expression of God’s glory in our midst. There will be opportunities to engage in the art of improv, visual art, music making, poetry, and whatever creative gifts you have to share. We invite you to join us and bring your playful and creative spirit with you. We will be joined by artists, musicians, and improv actors who will lead us in a variety of workshops and help us explore our own creative gifts. During the retreat, we will also spend time in prayer and reflection on how God is made manifest in us. Come ready to play!
The retreat will be take place at the Procter Center in London, Ohio. We begin on Friday night, December 16th at 5 pm and will conclude on Saturday, December 17th around 3 pm. This retreat is free for young adults ages 18-35. But you must register here to let us know you are coming!
We are inspired by this quote from Marianne Williamson:
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
― Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of “A Course in Miracles”
