This study creates a space to journey together, to share and reflect so that we can deepen our discipleship, be affirmed in our faith and ongoing spiritual journey, explore and challenge inherited assumptions, make meanings of our own life, explore and share the wisdom within us, and feel positive about our relationship with God. This retreat is geared primarily to folks over the age of 50, but anyone interested in this topic is welcome to attend.

There are eight themes that we will explore: Identity, Memories, Transition times, Wisdom, Roles and relationships, Forgiveness and reconciliation, Death and dying, and Celebration of life. Each theme will be discussed in relation to scripture. Conversations will be in small groups of three to four people. You are invited to bring a Bible, but that is not required. There will be handouts of the scripture passages used in our time together. This is an opportunity to share and learn from one another.
