Resting as Resistance
Drawing from the provocative book Rest is Resistance by the “Nap Bishop” Tricia Hersey, we will explore together the necessity of rest for our personal and communal wellbeing. We will learn new ways to set healthy boundaries, ways to slow down when our to-do lists seem never-ending, and ways to rest in God’s embrace in the midst of life’s ups and downs. If you’re exhausted, weary, or discouraged, you will have opportunities to be renewed by spending time walking in the woods, relaxing in the whirlpool, scheduling a massage (extra cost), or taking a much-needed nap. Led by Pastor Monica Hammersten, Pastor Rebecca Wold Freeman, and Conference & Retreat Center Director Rev. Theresa Latini.
The retreat will begin with dinner on Friday and culminate with brunch on Sunday. Arrive on Friday afternoon and enjoy the pool, whirlpool, sauna and beautiful lounges and grounds at the Conference & Retreat Center. Register for single occupancy, double occupancy, dorm occupancy, or as a commuter. The commuter rate includes meals and all presentations, Friday evening through Sunday brunch. Double occupancy registrations require a roommate.
