Grace Unfolding Retreat: Light of the Dark Night


  • LaCygne Community Retreat Center 22626 E. 2400 Rd La Cygne, KS 66040 (map)

 Everyone who follows Jesus as a disciple will encounter dry seasons in their ability to sense God and hear his voice. These seasons have been called a desert, hitting a wall, dry times, dark nights, or disengagements from God's presence. Do you know that these seasons are essential to spiritual development? Do you know why and how God wants to use them for your benefit? There are a lot of confusing thoughts about these dark or dry seasons; are they a result of poor choices on our part or something initiated by God? How do we know the difference between what John of the Cross called God’s initiative; “the dark night of the sense” verses the consequences to our own disobedience? This retreat will show how each are means of grace toward our spiritual formation and how we might discern between the two.

This retreat is being held at the Youthfront, La Cygne Community Retreat Center. The retreat begins on a Friday evening at 7:00 PM and concludes Sunday around 11:00 AM. Cost for the retreat (unless otherwise specified) is $200 which covers private lodging with towels and linens, all meals, and any retreat materials. We do offer a 2 for 1 deal which allows you to register and pay for a retreat and then bring a friend along for free. Just notify us of your friend’s name. In some cases the 2 for 1 option will require you and your friend to share lodging. 

 CAN'T MAKE THE OVERNIGHT RETREAT?
