Ottawa Monthly Meeting Ministry and Counsel is organizing a half-day spiritual retreat for members and attenders of our Monthly Meeting, at the Meeting House, on Saturday September 22, from 9 am to 12 pm. Everyone is welcome.
We are envisioning a three-hour period of deep spiritual presence, connection, cleansing, and worship. We will begin with one hour of completely silent worship, followed by one hour of shared reflection around the topic of “Grace,” followed by one hour of silent worship with ministry, with small silent breaks in between. We will not share refreshments during, or a meal after, the retreat, so that we can maintain the deep silence and reflection and take it with us as we leave.
Depending on the feedback of the Meeting after the first mini-retreat, M&C will look at possibly organizing this several times a year, presenting different topics for the reflection.
