Discovering Light in Darkness: A Meditative Writing Retreat @ Norbertine Abbey
Mar 2 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm
Discovering Light in Darkness: A Meditative Writing Retreat @ Norbertine Abbey

The offering for the retreat day is $55.00, which includes lunch.  All are welcome to participate—no writing experience is necessary

Throughout our lives there is an ongoing interplay of darkness and light, struggle and clarity.  Even when we do not see the light, we can trust that God/Love dwells in the darkness with us, holding and supporting us.  This realization can transform our darkness into a life-affirming experience.

 This retreat day is an opportunity to explore the “interconnectedness and the mutual inter-dependency of dark and light” (Esther de Waal) and to dispose ourselves to receiving the gifts hidden in this darkness more fully.

*In April, we will not have Taizé in the Desert as the third Friday of the month is Good Friday*

All are welcome to join us on the third Friday of each month at 7:00 PM. This is an ecumenical and interdenominational form of prayer. Taizé is a spirituality that is easy to experience and hard to describe. Invite your friends and family.

Thank you for continuing to join us for this evening of prayer through the style of Taizé!
