Water in the Desert

The Journey to Wholeness Retreats offered an opportunity for participants to deepen their understanding of Christian spirituality along a given theme. The theme for the Lent 2008 retreat was Water in the Desert. Desert spirituality is an important component of both the Old and New Testaments as scripture was written for people living in a desert land and used that imagery to teach about how to find spiritual sustenance for the barren places in our lives. Participants discovered proven methods for both nourishing spiritual growth and strengthening their faith so that when tough times comes, they can be like trees planted by streams of water.

It was yet another highly successful retreat. The level of participation has continued to be very gratifying. Below are a few photos from the weekend.
