Homecoming

A Contemplative Writing Retreat

Using the Parable of the Prodigal Son and the Older Brother as a backdrop, attendees will explore themes of identity, belonging, and belovedness.  The day will be structured around times of teaching, writing, conversation and silence.  Attention will be given to balancing space for quiet reflection with opportunities to connect with other attendees. Together, we will listen for the voice of the One who calls us home. 

*Please note...Kelly is leading this Day Retreat 2 different days, in 2 separate locations. See below for information specific to both offerings of this retreat.
