Staff Alumni & Young Adult’s Retreat

December 27 - December 29

A time for young adults to share a rest in the wilderness of our lives and listen to God in the winter quiet. This retreat will be an opportunity to share our stories, enjoy God’s creation on the ski hill, and learn about spiritual practices for wandering.

Join FLBC & our guest speaker, Baird Linke, this December. With a focus on the wilderness narratives in scripture and highlighting that transformation is a process and not a single flash of insight. Discussing how spirituality for young adults often feels wandering and uncertain, we will honor that reality and open some space for the practices that help young people while they’re in spiritual wildernesses. Sources such a The Four Vision Quests of Jesus by Stephen Charleston, The Silent Cry: Mysticism and Resistance by Dorothee Soelle, and We Drink From Our Own Wells by Gustavo Gutiérrez will also be referenced/discussed. Come for fun, great food, spiritual growth, relaxation, meeting new friends… a great way to start the new year!
