What spiritual practices sustain you? What does prayer/contemplation mean in your life? How do you support yourself and others during challenging times? Are you creating space for spiritual learning? How does your spiritual practice permeate your way of being in the world?

This retreat is designed for nurturing and embracing daily life with simplicity, gratitude, hope, and a deep sense of connection. During this online kairos you will have the opportunity to explore some queries that will support you in your spiritual journey.

Kairos (καιρός) is an ancient Greek noun describing an opportune and decisive moment, a combination of time and place that generates the opportune environment for actions, words, and/or movements. We intend to create such a unique space for spiritual growth by combining key practices from Christianity and other faith traditions. This kairos is rooted in meeting for worship and worship sharing, lectio divina (divine reading), silence, community, work, study, and celebration. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in contemplative praying of the Scriptures as they experience the deep practice of worship sharing. As well, they will bring awareness of the many challenges and blessings in our contemporary life and hold them in a prayerful, loving, and compassionate way.
