Song of the Soul: Listening to Your Life's Lyrics
Thursday, September 19, 2019
10:00AM – 3:00PM
Music is powerful: it evokes memories, affects emotions, connects us with others, and aids in healing. This retreat will explore the ways in which each of us can carry music with us throughout our lives; for some of us, we may even have a “life-song”, something that speaks deeply to God’s movement in our lives. Our retreat day will include a discussion of how and why music has the power to affect us. We will contemplate some of Jesus' encounters with people and imagine what songs describe those moments. Finally, we will reflect on our own lives and discover the refrains and lyrics that have been most significant for us. Our time will include small group discussion, guided meditation and quiet time for prayer and reflection. Light lunch included.
