Spring Prayer Retreat—Wide and Long and High and Deep: Expanding our Prayer Horizons
Nurture your relationship with God away from the hustle and bustle of classes and activities with a one-day prayer retreat.
In Paul’s great letter to the Ephesians his prayers are as expansive as the immeasurable, unbounded love of God in Christ. In this hectic world, our prayers can all too easily become small or constrained by comparison. On this retreat, Bruce and Carolyn Hindmarsh guide us to pray with the apostle Paul by reflecting on his prayers from the beginning, middle, and end of Ephesians. The horizons of prayer turn out to be a vast as the love of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. As we allow God’s capacity to be the measure of our prayers, we will find there is space for all we even dare ask or imagine.
Cost is $35 for full-time students and seniors, $50 for adults.
