Mend: Reservoir’s Church-wide Retreat
September 13, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - September 14, 2019 @ 9:00 pm
Registration is open for Reservoir’s fifth annual retreat, featuring guest speaker Laura Everett. Laura, is the Executive Director of the Massachusetts Council of Churches and has also spent a great amount of time exploring the spirituality of mending. She will use this rich and tactile metaphor to help us explore our own places that might need honest repair – whether it’s in our communities, relationships, or ourselves. Laura believes that, “God is a mender. God takes what the world considers disposable, curls up in a large chair and looks with patience to repair what is broken in each of us. God sees our tears and tenderly stitches us up. Sometimes that repair feels like an unraveling. Yet, mending is an affirmation of worth.”
Come to experience lots of opportunities to rest, renew, and mend your broken places. Many people point to our annual retreat as one of the highlights of their year.
