About the event:
Our title, “God’s Extravagant Love: The Flowers Are for You,” tries to describe both what the retreat is about and also the overall theme of the Sensible Shoes book series. Sharon’s message is God’s extravagant love. He loves us, individually, and altogether, more than we can possibly understand. “My Beloved is mine, and I am His” (Song of Songs 2:16). Her teaching will center on this love, and teach us how to accept the “flowers” He has for each of us.
Our day will include three teaching sessions led by Sharon Garlough Brown. Each session will include an hour of teaching, and then at least 30 minutes for personal prayer/reflection.
In the course of the teaching, Sharon will also lead us deeper into ways of reading Scripture, new ways to pray and stay in closer touch with our Lord throughout our daily lives. These ways are known as “spiritual disciplines.” Sharon says
"Whenever we are talking about spiritual disciplines, we have to talk about them as ways of receiving the love of God, and then abiding in the love of God, and then finally responding to the love of God."
Lunch will be provided by Southbound Sandwich Works and will include an assortment of delicious, fresh salads, toast points and dessert. There will be options for vegans.
Sharon’s books will be available for sale at a discount during the break, during lunch hour, and after the retreat.
