Retreat: Re-Formed by Grace

3pm Fri 1/27 - 1pm Sat 1/29, Conference and Retreat Center

At the start of each new year, voices in society encourage us to make resolutions, start fresh, and plan for more joy and less sorrow. As we know, however, sorrows come even into the best-laid plans for joy.  As Christians, how do we make sense of Paul's claim that "God's grace is sufficient for you" (2 Cor. 12:9) in a world where sorrow sometimes seems stronger than joy?  Join us for reflections of what it means to be "Re-Formed by Grace" in our joyous and sorrowful lives, and how we might live into God's sufficient grace in 2017 and beyond.
