Happy New Year!
We’re on the cusp of change, one of my favorite places to be.
While turning the calendar to 2021 won’t miraculously bring peace or healing, I do love fresh starts and new beginnings. So I pray this new year will bring true goodness and lasting joy in the days and weeks to come.
Because I’m a lover of New Year’s, I always want to spend this time in prayer and reflection. Like many of you, I’m craving connection and conversation in the midst of life at home. So as I prepared for what January might bring, I dreamt up the idea of a virtual retreat.
Together we’ll explore the beginning of the Gospel of Matthew: surprising dreams, unexpected visitors, turbulent times, and life-changing callings. These Scripture stories will come alive in new ways as we bring them to prayer, reflecting on our own lives, questions, and challenges.
The retreat is virtual, designed to fit into your schedule. We’ll meet on Zoom once each day (and sessions will be recorded for later viewing if you can’t join live). The 40-page Epiphany e-book will guide your prayer and reflection throughout the rest of the week.
I’ve been hard at work on the retreat as 2020 draws to a close, and I’m amazed at the epiphanies waiting to be discovered in these Scripture. You might think you know these familiar stories, but trust me: surprising truth is waiting for you.
Epiphany will help you enter into the new year in deeper prayer. Whether you’re discerning changes within your callings or need encouragement to keep going in the daily work of your vocation, this retreat is for you.
A virtual retreat is great for people who can’t get away to a traditional retreat (which is many of us right now!): working parents, caregivers, busy professionals, college students, retirees, or anyone who simply craves peace and quiet.
You can give the retreat as a gift to a loved one. Scholarships/sliding scale fees are also available for those who need it.
Together let’s embrace the New Year as a chance to enter into discernment about what God is asking of each of us in this time.
