Trust and Power: Conversations with God Silent 24-Hour Retreat

Friday, February 3, @ 4:30 pm Saturday, February 4, @ 4:30 pm

Sometimes prayer feels like the best kept secret of the saints, but the reality is that it is as easy to do as a baby murmuring “Mama!” During this retreat we will talk about and experience a variety of prayer modes: vocal prayer, Scriptural prayer, meditative prayer, contemplative prayer, lectio divina which includes many of these types of prayer. Above all, we will gaze upon our God in the Eucharist and let Him speak to us. Individuals $130, Couples $215 (includes lodging and 3 meals).

Racial Reparations: Faith Communities and Political Action


In their infamous booklet "Southern Slavery as It Was," Doug Wilson of Moscow Idaho, and Steve Wilkins wrote: “There has never been a multi-racial society which has existed with such mutual intimacy and harmony in the history of the world.” The clear implication of this statement (yet to be retracted) is that Americans owe nothing to the descendants of these happy plantation workers.
