Young Adult Retreat Day
Saturday, May 16, 2020
We invite everyone to fast during our retreat, if possible, beginning after dinner on Friday. We will break our fast together with communion on Saturday night, followed by dinner. A chapter on the spiritual discipline of fasting (from "Celebration of Discipline") is included in your retreat pack. If you prefer a digital version, click here for a PDF. We encourage you to read this sometime this week.
Join us on Zoom for a time of welcome, worship, and Bible study.
Set up a comfortable space – a cozy corner, maybe a fort! – and spend some time there in silence and solitude.
Join us on Zoom for games! Make sure to bring the mask from your retreat pack :)
Choose any or all of these activities for your afternoon: lectio divina, daily examen, a nature/prayer walk, or silence and solitude. For lectio divina, you can choose your own passages to read or use the recordings below, available to stream or download, to guide you through several passages. During this time, you can also bake your bread in preparation for our time of communion. A recipe for the bread is included in your retreat pack, or you can click here to view it online.
Join us on Zoom for a time of worship. We'll break our fast together with communion, so bring your bread and some juice—or whatever drink you have available! After communion, we'll enjoy dinner together and close with a time of prayer.
After dinner, join us for an optional Netflix watch party! Movie TBD. Bring your snacks!
