Prayer Retreat

October 20-22, 2017


“Finding God in the Questions” Prayer Retreat

Today, we seldom have to live more than a few moments with unanswered questions. We all simply “Google it.” In this fast-paced, technologically advanced world of ours, we have lost the ability to live in the questions. But as the poet Rilke once wrote, it is important sometimes to “try to love the questions” and to “live the questions now.”

What are your questions? How can we find God in the questions of our hearts? What are God’s questions? What can they teach us about ourselves? There is much to learn by living the questions.

Join us for this prayer retreat in the setting of the beautiful Texas Hill Country as we consider “God in the questions.” This year’s prayer retreat will be led by Judy Yates Siker. Click the leadership tab to learn more about Judy!

Register now, space is limited!
