"Where Did ‘I’ Come From?”(Check-in from 4:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. on Friday; Check-out at noon on Sunday)
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.
