Weekend Retreat - October 21

Union Avenue Congregation Weekend Retreat

Live, Love, Share.........Visibly One in Christ

October 21-23


From the Words of Counsel 2013,
our spiritual focus for the weekend:
Beloved Community of Christ, do not just speak and sing of Zion.

Live, love, and share as Zion: those who strive to be visibly one in Christ, among whom there are no poor or oppressed.
As Christ’s body, lovingly and patiently bear the weight of criticism from those who hesitate to respond to the divine vision of human worth and equality in Christ. This burden and blessing is yours for divine purposes.
And, always remember, the way of suffering love that leads to the cross also leads to resurrection and everlasting life in Christ’s eternal community of oneness and peace.


Trust in this promise.
Amen. Stephen M. Veazey
President of the Church

Mission Prayer
God, where will your Spirit lead today?
Help me be fully awake and ready to respond.
Grant me courage to risk something new
and become a blessing of your love and peace.
Amen.

Let’s all keep these words in our thoughts & prayers as we prepare for our weekend together!

There is no Camp Cook nor a sign-up list for meal prep.
If you sign up and bring, for instance, mac & cheese for a meal, it’s anticipated that you will get it in the oven in time and put it on the serving table. We’ll pull together for clean-up as well.
$$$
Last year, ALL of our weekend costs were covered! We feel certain God will provide this year as well. The actual cost per person is about $50 (whether or not people stay overnight since there’s a flat fee for the Lodge.) But just GIVE WHAT YOU ARE ABLE and God will bless us!
You may make out your check to Community of Christ and write “RETREAT” in the memo section. Either give it to Doris at church, put in in the offering (NOT in a tithe envelope), or just pay when you arrive at the retreat.
