RENEW YOUR IMAGINATION FOR WHAT FAMILY LIFE CAN BE

What does it look like to walk in the way of Jesus as a family?How can we create a sense of home that honors the best of where we come from and embraces the emerging challenges and opportunities of life in the 21st century? It’s easy to get stuck reacting to the unhelpful patterns. Or it’s tempting to mirror the default values of safety, security, self-focus and material success that have characterized our culture. We know that simplistic, rule-based and one-size fits all approaches won’t work. Now more than ever, we need a vision for family that is creative, intentional, soulful and globally aware.

Families come in all shapes and sizes. Whether you have children, hope to have children, parent solo or with a partner, your household can be a place of BELONGING & BECOMING, where each person feels safe, cared for and loved and is supported to develop who they are for the good of the world.

Conference participants will receive a copy of the book BELONGING & BECOMING: Creating a Thriving Family Cultureand lunch will also be provided as part of the registration fee.

Childcare for the duration of the conference is available. You should purchase an additional ticket per child for childcare.

The Nine Beats Retreat, sponsored by the Salvation Army

The Nine Beats Retreat, sponsored by the Salvation Army

Signs of haunting are all around us. The gap widens between the poor and the rich. Conflict rages between groups and nations. Due to our actions, even the future of the planet is threatened. If we aren't disturbed then we haven't been paying attention. What if the Beatitudes contain the keys to our liberation— a nine statement manifesto of a new way of thinking and being that can change our lives and our world?

During this three day retreat we will explore the revolutionary invitation of the Beatitudes, including group learning and exercises, periods of silent reflection and space to relax, recharge, connect and have fun. Participants will come away equipped with tools and resources to lead a Ninefold Path Beatitudes journey with others. Registration includes a copy of the Ninefold Path notebook and digital access to the Ninefold path learning lab group guide.

Retreat Goals:

• explore the radical life-giving invitation of the Beatitudes.

• engage the dynamic of shared spiritual practices.

• Create space to rest, connect and refresh.

• Come away with tools and skills to lead others on a journey through the beatitudes using the Ninefold Path Notebook.
