EIGHTH DAY OF CREATION: A Weekend Retreat back

June 17 - June 19, 2018

This retreat, originally scheduled for June 22-24, was cancelled.

​Theme: ​EIGHTH DAY OF CREATION.  As the earth tips into summer on this solstice weekend, we will explore the wonder of creation in Genesis, Chapter 1 - and the presence of God's ongoing creation in our lives.  Clay and other art materials will be available.

Leader: ​Marjory Zoet Bankson is a potter, teacher, seasoned spiritual guide and Steward at Seekers Church.


Weekend retreats run Friday dinner through Sunday lunch. The silence begins Friday night after dinner when the leader opens the retreat and introduces the theme. The leader usually offers brief meditations with morning and evening prayers on Saturday. The silence ends late-morning Sunday with a time of sharing and worship, followed by lunch and departure.

The cost for weekend retreats is $225. To reserve a space, please send a $100 deposit with an application you can print from the application page, or pay on line by going to the application page and clicking on payment options.

Dinner on Friday at 7 pm is the first official gathering. You are welcome to arrive and settle in between 3:30 and 6:30 pm on Friday. The retreat will end by 2 pm on Sunday.  It is important that you come on a weekend when you can stay for the whole retreat.
