Dwelling Place Community/Associates Gather for Semiannual Retreat

February 17-19

As we gathered for prayer, God reminded us:"I love you, my children, and you know I have you in the palm of my hand. I will carry you always".

Encouraged by these words, we viewed Ron Ronheiser as he challenged us to put Sabbath time in our lives.

Though there was time for study and prayer, there was also time to relax and rejoice in each other (see photos).

The group also discussed various facets of the ministry and how they may be involved. They brainstormed for our Luau fundraiser and our Franciscan outreach.

Come to Pray- on Your Time

We schedule retreats at specific times but we welcome you to come privately for retreat or spiritual direction anytime it is convenient for you and space is available. Three hermitages (small cottages) are available. Just check our website and send in your request.

Consider bringing your prayer group, deacons, parish council, or a group of faith-filled friends to experience the peace and renewal that so many individuals experience here. Bring your own director. Tailor the time to fit your need for silence, prayer, sharing and input. Check our website for options available. Contact Sheila Avery, secretary, 662-738-5348 to schedule your time.
