Retreat for Deacons and Lay People

The Disciple’s Mission to Manifest

God’s Kingdom on Earth 


Friday, September 7th - Sunday, September 9th, 2018

Dr. Elizabeth Nagle

Retreat Director:

Dr. Elizabeth Nagel

This retreat will explore how the parables of the Kingdom of God reframe common experiences, provoke fresh ideas about living a baptized life, and urge constant metanoia or change that following Jesus demands. Sessions will provide exercises that help participants learn how to enter the world that produced these biblical texts so that they can hear what God is saying to them there.
