“FAITH IN AN AGE OF POWER”
Monday, March 6 thru Wednesday, March 8, 2017
7 p.m. – Main Worship Space
God may not be dead, but is religion “over”? Many people prefer to identify as spiritual but not religious. Can an affluent nation even pretend to be Christian? How do the most powerful people on the planet follow the Man on the Cross?
Our retreat leader will be ALICE CAMILLE author, religious educator, and nationally known retreat leader. She received the Master of Divinity from the Franciscan School of Theology at Berkeley, where she served as adjunct faculty in preaching and proclamation. Alice has worked in parishes and campus ministry, and speaks at Catholic conferences around the country. She takes God seriously—and the business of religion with a sense of humor.
Monday, March 6: “Why We Tell the Long Old Story”
Each year, our sacred stories take us to the same destination: the Passion of Our Lord. Yet the greatest story ever told remains fresh and alive for each new generation.
Tuesday, March 7: “Humility in an Age of Power”
We covet power. We seek it. We wield it. But we don’t understand anything about power until we lay it down.
Wednesday, March 8: “Power and Passion”
Our society is addicted to two things: power and passion. The gospel is likewise a story of power and passion, consecrating both to God’s purposes.
