Between a Rock and a Hard Place:
Obstacles, Resistance, and Pitfalls To Spiritual Growth
All human nature vigorously resists grace,
because grace changes us and change is painful.
-Flannery O’Connor, Letters
I am leading a retreat at the Magnificat Center for Unity and Reconciliation March 22-23 in Wichita, Kansas.
This is a beautiful center with great accomodations, good food, and the warm embrace of a loving community of sisters. I would love to see you there!
We say we want to deepen our faith. We plan to pray more. We tell ourselves this month I will take some time off to listen to God. We read books about faith, we get devotional emails, yet we still find ourselves harried, anxious, and burdened.
Where are the freedom, the joy, and the generous compassion of life in God?
This retreat will take a look at some attitudes and behaviors which may block our spiritual development and maturity.You will have an opportunity to identify some of the barriers that obscure your contact with the Holy in your life. We will consider changes that might help open our awareness and connection with the Giver of Joy and Peace. Time for individual and group reflection will be offered along with informal presentations.
