March 27, 2020 6:30 pm - March 29, 2020 1:00 pm


Amidst the chaotic and violent atmosphere in which we live, have you been motivated to reflect on Jesus’ parables lately? If, perhaps, you have come to such a reflection point, could you possibly imagine your discovery of Jesus’ parables speaking to:
* bridging the gap between rich and poor
* enabling actions for workers; rights and just wages
* exposing legal systems of exploitation
* whistle-blowing for an ethical economy and even noting the “seedings” of attention to environmental concerns
* organizing solidarity with others for the common good
* combating the abusive and pervasive spiraling of violence
* equalizing a just distribution of resources
* activating the power of forgiveness
Please consider yourself personally invited to attend a weekend of reflection on just such issues as these … and do bring a Bible!
