Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”     Matthew 11:28,29 (NLT)

SPRING RETREATS & EVENTS 

WORKSHOP – March 7 – The Enneagram: A Tool For Transformation – The Enneagram is an ancient personality inventory that has been widely used as a tool for spiritual formation. This workshop will provide an introduction into the Enneagram and an overview of the nine personality types. We will explore what each of these types looks like, what motivates them, and provide pathways for transformation for each number. The workshop teachers are Becca Payne and Rose Estes. – Location: Third Church in Richmond, VA

SOUL CARE MORNING – April 4 – The Cross of Christ – With holy week beginning the day after this retreat, we will spend the morning considering the cross of Christ and how we are being invited to live in response to what Christ accomplished for us. The morning will begin and end with liturgical worship, with time in between to spread out on the campus to spend time alone with God. There will also be stations of the cross based of the work of Seattle artist, Scott Erickson. – Location: The Campus of Veritas School in Richmond, VA

SOUL CARE RETREAT FOR WOMEN – May 1 – Welcoming Jesus  – In our current culture, Christian women seem to be pulled in so many directions. And juggling the demands of everyday life can lead to feelings of pressure and anxiety. This one-day retreat will focus on how Mary & Martha responded to Jesus in Luke 10. The invitation is to spend a day with Jesus – considering what it means to welcome him into every part of your life.  – Location: Roslyn Retreat Center in Richmond, VA
