“What, for us, is Sacred?”: Men’s Autumn Retreat

With Glenn Inglis

November 24 - 26, 2023

There was a time when we would speak of scripture, sacraments, vows, precious objects, and even the Creation itself as sacred. But these days we hear the question “Is anything sacred?” We tend to measure most things in terms of material value or utility.
In our weekend together, we will consider what is sacred to/for us. And how do we regain a sense of the sacred in this troublesome time of our world?
As background, we will ask participants to acquire a book by Margaret Silf, “Sacred In The City” – (Lion Books/Augsburg*) a very brief but insightful reflection on ‘seeing the spiritual in every day.’

We gather as a group for times of sharing and song. There will be opportunities for small group discussion, solitude and prayer – and quiet walks to enjoy the beauty and peace around the Centre. The pace allows us time for rest and renewal. We close the weekend with worship and communion.
