As A Little Child Retreat Day

As A Little Child Retreat Day 

 

Description

To be a human being is to be a child of God. – M. Bartolo-Abela

Setting a child in their midst, Jesus told his closest friends – If you want to really get what I’m all about, become like this.  Is it possible Jesus meant what he said?

As A Little Child will invite us to consider Jesus’ invitation.  What is it about children that makes them so special?  How can we actively re-embody the gifts of childhood?  What is the cost of this invitation?  What is to be gained? What are practical ways to nurture the child within?

Participants will find the day to be a spacious time of opening, pondering and practicing the art of playful curiosity.


Suggested reading: Playdates with God, by Laura Boggess; Loser, by Jerry Spinelli, The Runaway Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown, The House in the Night by Susan Swanson, and any other children’s book you simply adore.
