Beloved: An Online Retreat for Lent

Lent is drawing close, already! It was such a remarkable gift to travel through Advent with so many of you on the Illuminated Retreat, and also to have you share in the Women's Christmas Retreat. As we look toward the coming season, I would love for you to join us for the all-new online retreat that I’ll be offering during Lent. Here’s a glimpse of what’s ahead:

BELOVED: An Online Journey into Lent & Easter
March 4 – April 21
New for 2014!

This online retreat is not about adding one more thing to your schedule! It is about helping you find spaces for reflection that draw you into the mysteries and gifts of this season. Intertwining reflection, art, music, and community, this retreat offers a space of elegant simplicity as you journey through Lent.

You can join in the retreat from anywhere you are; you do not have to show up at a particular place or time. You’re welcome to engage the retreat as much or as little as you wish, in the way that works best for you. If you’re hungry for a simple way to move deeply into this season, this retreat is for you.

For more info and registration, visit Online Lenten Retreat or click the retreat logo above. That page also has a link to an FAQ page with further details. If you have any questions, or if you have any concerns about things that you think might hinder you from participating in the retreat, please be sure to visit these pages.

Group and congregational rates are available. You can also give the retreat as a gift!

The season of Lent invites us to know, most of all, how utterly and thoroughly God loves us, and to let go of everything that would keep us from receiving and responding to that love. This invitation is at the heart of the Beloved Lenten Retreat. If that sounds good to you—if you’d like to lean into the love that enfolds and encompasses you—I would love to travel with you.

Blessings to you as Lent draws near.

    This is a journey into Lent that is very different for me. My husband, my beloved has suddenly gone to be with The Lord. We were married for 42 years. We were soul mates engaged in ministry together for over 35 years. Now I am searching for God's love that I ( we) sugared with others to be all for me in my heart break. God is no stranger to a broken heart.

    • Susan, I'm so very sorry about your husband. I am grateful that God is indeed no stranger to a broken heart. I send many blessings for your broken heart and pray that God will enfold and encompass you in comfort and love, and provide everything you need in this time.
