Conversion is a personal experience that leads us to community. The movement of transformation beckons us to believe and accept our identity as the beloved of God. For most of us, conversion is not one, brief, blinding moment that changes our life forever, but rather a slow, maturing process that takes place over time as we learn a new language of the soul. This retreat reflects on how the life of faith is a sojourn of the soul. During this retreat, this rest stop for the soul, we will explore stories of our faith and seek to see how they connect and reconnect us to the stories of our lives.
