Lunch & Dialogue: Encountering Jesus in His Hidden Years

February 27, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Mini Retreat

Join us this Lent as we spend time reflecting on the hidden or unknown years of Jesus’ life and prayerfully discerning their relevance to our unique journey with Him. Much of what we know about our Lord in the Scriptures involves His birth, public ministry and Passion. But, our hearts and minds often wonder what experiences He shared in that formed Him during His adolescent, teenage and young adult years.

After lunch and through meditation, dialogue and writing exercises, participants will connect with the graces available by imaginatively accompanying Jesus in these years not mentioned in the New Testament. A deepening of our faith and personal relationship with Jesus will be a focus for our time spent together. A journal is a good companion for this program.

This mini-retreat will begin with lunch and then a presentation and discussion will follow. Guided by Gordon Creamer.

He has been involved in programming and operations in healthcare since 2001 at various Assisted Living, Skilled Nursing and Hospice communities.
