Retreat on Living Your Best Life: Lessons from John’s Gospel

June 16-19 (Thursday-Sunday)

God makes it possible for everyone to live their best life on earth. “But how?” we ask. Through the incredibly rich message in John’s Gospel, Jesus explained how we can actually live the “abundant life.” As we open ourselves to walk with Jesus through these 21 chapters, we will connect with his presence in a fresh new way, allowing us to live the miracle of love, heal from a broken heart, calm an anxious mind, maximize talents and resources, gain a better understanding of the world in which we live, and grow in trust in a mistrusting age.
