Star of the North Retreat Centre - 3 A St Vital Ave, St. Albert, AB
Join us at our first Alumni Spiritual Retreat! We're excited to spend time in meaningful community and conversation, as well as welcome King's staff members Witty Sandle and Tim Wood as they share a message on transitions titled "That Happened -- Now What?".
Transitions are an inevitable part of life and come in all manner of ways. There are the ones we see coming—graduating school, changing jobs, children leaving home... And there are those that blindside us—an unexpected diagnosis, loss of a relationship, sudden financial crisis …The lists could go on.
Transitions can raise questions of identity, often prompting a search for significance and meaning. Transitions can expose our deepest fears, ignite us into taking action or catapult us into confusion. What or who will help us keep our bearings in an ever-changing world? How can we live an abundant and flourishing life even when our external world throws us around? Can we find a grounded center of peace? Can even our most difficult and unexpected transitions be an occasion to experience growth and grace?
By engaging various Christian spiritual practices, times of solitude and group spiritual direction, this retreat will provide a contemplative space to address the transitions in our lives and the questions and emotions they raise.
