March 13 - March 15, 2020
Theme: A Liminal Space - during this season of Lent, we wait. Waiting is not something that most of us are skilled at doing! This land, and the Spirit of God, give us the opportunity to slow down, so that we can gather ourselves, and remember to listen to the still, small voice within. The natural world, and this holy Dayspring space, are always ready to teach us what we most need to know. In our silence, we will discover the beauty within and without.
Leader: Jim Marsh Jr. is a United Methodist pastor, child and adolescent psychotherapist, covenant member of Bread of Life church, and a member of the Recovery Cafe DC design team. Within those things that I do, I am reminded that my greatest work is to find ways in which to simply be.
For Dayspring Church. Others welcome as space permits.
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 $235. 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.
