Recovery Retreat with NACR | February 27-March 2
Awaken to Tenacious Serenity: Discipleship for the 21st century
Life in recovery is one that leads us to serenity and to hope. Yet serenity comes with the lifelong practice of surrendering and being released from a preoccupation of the self that keeps us small and constricted. It is a process that God’s love takes us through and it unites the passive “Not my will but yours” with the active “Thy will be done on earth.” But serenity is not formed in isolation – it happens through service and in the vulnerability in community. In a world that undulates with anxiety, communities of faith that nurture serenity will be outposts of hope. David Augsburger will bring his presence and thought-provoking perspective, and will lead us through the practice of serenity. You and those you love need this weekend for sustaining ministry.
