Experiencing the Trinity 3-Day Retreat
The 2021 Experiencing the Trinity Retreat will be conducted online using the video-conferencing platform of Zoom (Friday, November 12, 6:30-9:00pm EDT / Saturday, November 13, 10:00am to 5:30pm EDT and Sunday, November 14, 2:00pm to 6:00pm EDT). The retreat cost is $75.00/person for the three days. The discount cost for a congregation is $375.00. Requirements include a computer with a high-speed internet connection and a webcam. Participants (or a group leader registering for a congregation) will be sent a Zoom Link as well as a Participant Guide via email following registration. Group leaders can then distribute the link as well as the Participant Guide to group members.
In order to fully benefit from the retreat experience, participants must be willing to carefully prepare their schedules and physical environment prior to the retreat in order to be present and without interruption during the three-day period of the retreat. Since the retreat is bathed in prayer, each participant is asked to find a minimum of five individuals not attending the retreat who are willing to dedicate themselves to praying for the participant over the three days.
Before attending the retreat, all participants are encouraged to take a Spiritual Temperament Inventory and to read "A Window Into The Heart of God." See the links to these materials on this page in the sidebar to the right.
