EcoFaith Recovery invites you and your faith community to “Return to the Rhythms of God” through worship, retreats, and practice groups focused on this theme in 2016! The EcoFaith network will engage more deeply in Practice #4 of EcoFaith’s Practices for Awakening Leadership whereby we seek realignment of our lives with the life-giving patterns of God and God’s creation.
The retreats will be held at and in partnership with St. Andrew Lutheran Church, Beaverton.
All three retreats are offered at no cost to participants due to a Lilly Grant St. Andrew Lutheran Church received designating monies for this purpose
Members of your faith communities and other communities are welcome, so please save the date and encourage others to do so, too.
A Lenten Retreat with
Pastor Solveig Nilsen-Goodin and Wilderness Way
Our first retreat is Returning to the Rhythms of God by Listening for God’s Heartbeat in the Wilderness of Lent. Pastor Solveig Nilsen-Goodin and the Wilderness Way Community will invite us into biblical wilderness stories and the wilderness of St. Andrew’s “Sanctuary of the Firs,” as we listen for God’s heartbeat in the wilderness of our own souls, our relationships, our faith communities and the public sphere. Full details here.
An Easter Season Retreat with Bishop Dave Brauer-Rieke
The second retreat is on Returning to the Rhythms of God by Breathing In, Speaking Out, and Watching for the Wind.
Bishop Dave Brauer-Rieke of the Oregon Synod – ELCA invites us into imagining the Breath of God moving into, out of, and all around our every thought and action. Breath gives life and creates a common exchange between all beings. Breath grounds us and gives us voice. Our words create as we speak potential into possibility and with an Easter focus we will wonder at the miracle of Jesus “breathing his last and waking to breathe, and speak, again.
