2023 Nourish Retreat

2023 Nourish Retreat

Join Us for Nourish Retreat

goodness and rest

Living and working in the midst of ongoing injustice and discord takes a toll. The spirit grows faint, the heart fills with dismay, and bones become out of joint. Exhaustion, disillusionment, and withdrawal create barriers to connection and to compassionate action. We are, individually and collectively, frayed at the edges.

NOURISH Retreat meets scarcity with generosity, weariness with rest, ashes with beauty, broken hearts with balm.

Our hope is to set a table of welcome and rest that celebrates the manifold beauty of the church and invites connection with God, neighbor, and self.  We invite you to a weekend of restorative, restful, and encouraging moments and practices. The weekend will be structured to give ample time for both rest and reflection, in solitude and with others, indoors as well as outside in the beautiful surroundings, trusting that each participant will receive what they most need from our time together.

With intentional, restorative practices, food (catered by Kisha Moore), and community, NOURISH Retreat seeks to invite your body, mind, and soul to goodness and rest. 

You are called to good work in the world and our hope is that NOURISH Retreat gives you what you need to keep doing it.
