Soul Day for Pastors
June 11 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm
An Invitation to Retreat
How is your soul? In recent days, you have made countless sacrifices and adjustments in your life— personal, home-life and work. You have been our first responders to the needs of our local congregations and we praise God for you. This is an incredible feat, but it is also incredibly exhausting and overwhelming.
In the midst of busyness, Jesus didn’t invite his disciples into more busyness. He invited them into rest. Mark 6:31 writes, “Because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, ‘Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.’” In the same way, we would like to invite you into a quiet place for rest for your souls: a soul care day for pastors— prayer, community, spiritual practices, and rest.
There will be three online check-ins, two spaces for spiritual practices, morning and afternoon, and two soul groups where we share how God has spoken to us. It will be flexible for those with young children or other needs at home. There will also be the opportunity for spiritual direction.
