Listening for Guidance is the theme of our 2013 retreat. Led by Cammie Bella and Beth Dieker, this retreat will be focus on how might we hear God’s guidance. We all pray or have prayed sometime. We give thanks. We ask for things. We cry for help. How many of us were taught how to listen for guidance though? Many of us spend much of our lives in a “one way” conversation with God. No one taught us how to quiet our own chatter and listen for God’s voice - how to tune into God’s “channel”. We will explore some of the attitudes and practices which help us tune our “antennas” into the “God station”. As we practice what it means to be living in alignment with God’s desires for us, we come to know more and more what an abundant, whole-hearted life is all about. How to be the person God is drawing out of us and let go of the masks and armor we have constructed around us. How to be open to joy and let go of fear.
