"Where Did ‘I’ Come From?”

A weekend retreat with Roger B.! During this weekend retreat, we will explore the idea of “self”. Why am I the way I am? Why am I here? What is my purpose?Together we will gain a better understanding of where the “I” came from and we’ll transition into exploring how to build a resilient life with purpose, direction, value, and meaning. God makes this possible.
