Everything Ablaze: Encountering God’s generative love and abiding presence  within and around us

Presented by Arlene Flaherty

This retreat will provide input, simple ritual,  and contemplative space for retreatants to encounter and explore the Creator’s presence ablaze within creation and their lives. While drawing inspiration and guidance from the writings of Teilhard de Chardin, Thomas Berry, Elizabeth Johnson,  Denis Edwards, and the poetry of Mary Oliver, retreatants will be invited to discover anew what it means to live within a cosmos ablaze with God.
