As Christians, we are called to be people of hope. But how do we do this amid the gloom and doom that often pervades the daily news – and our personal lives? This retreat explores Christian hope and its relation to faith, love, wonder and courage. Using scripture, short videos, music, stories, sharing and humor, Sister Melannie Svoboda will join us via Zoom and suggest ways we can nourish hope in our everyday lives.
10:30-11:15 a.m.–Second Session
3:00-4:00 p.m.–Conference with final sharing and short prayer service
The fee is $60 for the online Zoom Retreat.
