From Brokenness to Redemption
Day and Date: Monday, March 31
Times: 9:00 AM-3:30 PM
Location: Strobel Room (McMillan 209)
Description: William Stafford once said of his poetry, "I have woven a parachute of everything broken." In that spirit, you are invited to a day of guided reflective writing on what is broken, weaving it together into something whole and even salvific.
Blending the themes of Brokenness, Surrender and Redemption, this retreat offers time to reflect on the season of Lent or any other season of loss in your life or in the world. Whether you are a writer or not, the day will invite you explore the redemptive presence of hope amidst the world's brokenness.
