Finding God in the Mess: One-day retreat
This day will offer practical approaches to prayer for the messy times when God seems absent from our lives, or when we feel abandoned or forgotten. Guided meditations, storytelling and images will be among what Brendan and Jim offer in this one-day retreat as they invite people to relate God’s compassion to their daily lives. The realities of suffering, sorrow, loss and grief may appear messy and uninviting, but may be the place in which God is ready to meet and bless us.
In their presentations and writing, Brendan and Jim address tough issues such as fear, anxiety, suicide and anger, offering ways of praying, using scripture and simple rituals.
Jim and Brendan are authors of Finding God in the Mess: Meditations for Mindful Living and Deeper into the Mess: Praying through Tough Times
