Growing with the Communion of the Saints

All Christians share a common faith in Jesus Christ. At the same time we live this faith in different contexts, coming from unique times,  places and cultures. The cultural air we breath shapes us in ways we cannot even imagine, creating blindspots in how we understand our faith. Through listening to our brothers and sisters in Christ who have taken the path of discipleship in different times and places, our eyes can be opened to these blindspots and we can grow deeper into the life with God and others. At this retreat we will enter into communion with the saints of the church across time and space. We will learn from Christians who lived long ago as well as our Christians brothers and sisters living today in different contexts across the globe.
