Create With Us – Barnabas

May 30 @ 4:00 pm - June 2 @ 12:00 pm

We are going back to Barnabas! You are invited to create with us (May 30-June 2) as we retreat again in this spectacular setting. Evy & I will be co-facilitating this weekend with Paul Young and Brad & Eden Jersak. Our focus flows out of something we heard Jamie Winship say at the Wonderfully Made retreat last year; “As Donna and I have watched people tune into their true selves one of the first things that happens is…they start creating.” Believing that every person on the face of the earth is creative, we are excited about coming together to explore what that looks like for each of us. It’s not about whether or not you paint, draw, or play a musical instrument. It’s about who God has created you to be and what it looks like for you to uniquely walk in that way. Most of us are more creative than we realize. Maybe it’s time to listen more closely to that inner voice and see what your Creator has to say about your identity and the creative way of your being.

As usual, this MARK Centre retreat will be relaxing and centred on listening. We will experience group sessions around tables to ensure lots of interaction. You will be given opportunities to write and reflect and listen to what is going on inside you.

The retreat starts in Horseshoe Bay at 5:45pm, Thursday May 30th. We will be meeting at the pier (down the road from the ferry terminal). Transportation is included from Horseshoe Bay but if you arrive after 6pm you will miss the one charter boat that we have arranged. You will return on Sunday at about 12pm.
