Spiritual Life Ministries
“Come away to a deserted place all by yourselves . . .
and rest a while.”
Fall Silent Retreat
October 28 - November 1, 2019
Jesus called his frazzled disciples to “Come away to a deserted place all by yourselves and rest a while” (Mark 6:31), and he issues the same call to all of us today as well. Our day-to-day lives can take on the character of rushing here and there as our multi-tasking minds take on so many bits of information that we find ourselves overburdened and exhausted. Do you see yourself described here?
The Spiritual Life Committee of the Ohio Region issues an invitation on behalf of Christ Jesus to ALL who are weary and jangled, to all who seem to have lost connection to the Source, to all who are in need of quiet time to come away by yourselves and rest awhile.
The Regional Spiritual Life Ministry meets at least once a year in person to plan for
Retreats at Camp Christian and to discuss possible new ministries for the Spiritual Life of Ohio. We also meet at the Minister's Retreat in February and have had some phone conference calls.
We feel we are expanding the programs at camp for creating community and giving new opportunity for ministers and laity to deepen their
Christian Spirituality. We hope and pray that God will bring in all of this, Transformation of body, mind and spirit. It is an effort to reach out beyond those we have been able to touch through the Ministers' Retreat to include other ministers and the laity of the church in Ohio and beyond.
