Walking in the Light: A Retreat with Jonathan Wilson Hartgrove

June 16, 2017 – June 18, 2017 all-day

Walking in the Light:
Radical Self-Honesty Amid the Shadows

Lies, deceptions, fabrications, even “false news” stories are nothing new! Hiding ourselves from the truth and hiding the truth from others are ancient and all-too-familiar shadows that conceal us from the light of God’s goodness and love. Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove will help us explore what St. Benedict, the Christian desert tradition, and the gospel have to tell us about dispersing those shadows and “walking in the light,” so that we can live truthfully with others and with ourselves. For more information about this weekend retreat please call 508-255-1094.
