“The foundation of everything is love because ‘God is love’ (1 John 4:8). God’s love in us is seeking to love and be loved and to bring healing and wholeness to a suffering world … love is our basic identity in God: ‘I am that which I am seeking.’ “ - Richard Rohr
What happens to us when we live into love, when we become love in a way that allows us to be that larger self to whom we are called by Jesus, namely, to love God by loving others?
Transformed by Love is a retreat experience that invites you to engage in the “work” of love—that is, putting yourself in the position to receive love and then allow it to flow out from you. In the beautiful setting of St. Francis Springs Prayer Center in Stoneville, experienced retreat facilitators will invite you to explore how we are transformed by spiritual practices related to community, compassion, change and commitment.
On this retreat, you will have the gift of true spaciousness – of time, beautiful spaces, conversation and silence. We will offer a variety of opportunities for awakening and opening to the Spirit: prayer, listening circles, worship, music, fellowship, walks, silence, breaking bread together, informal conversation, guided meditations, yoga, and art expression.
