“God is more intimate to us than we are to our own selves.” These words of St. Augustine remind us that though the work of becoming who we are demands our best energies, it is more about discovery that it is about self-construction. It is a call to collaboration with the Spirit who knows us as we are known by the One in who we live and move and have our being. Our retreat will explore some of the ways in which our lives intersect with the One who is Life, and heighten our awareness of the pearl “of great price” buried in the everyday soil of our existence.
Bishop Griswold and Barbara Braver have led popular retreats for PTI over the last dozen years. Daylesford Abbey, a monastery in Paoli, Pennsylvania, provides a peaceful and comfortable setting for spiritual renewal, quiet time and learning in the company of a small group of other retreatants.
The retreat costs $400 - please could you bring a check payable to 'Philadelphia Theological Institute' to the retreat. This includes accommodation, all food and hospitality and the costs of our speakers.
