What: Winter Sabbath Spiritual Retreat
Where: Mariandale Retreat Center, Ossining, NY
When: January 19-21, 2024
Cost: $255.00 (includes room and board with six meals)
The theme of this Winter Sabbath is “Holding Hope in Hopeless Times: A Journey Through the Book of Revelations.” Rev. Charlene A. Wingate will be the facilitator. The retreat will embrace the apocalyptical hope of early Christians as we journey through the Book of Revelation and compare it to the current day events of our world. While many believe that the Book of Revelation is a symbolic foretelling of the end times, we will examine the many ways the Book of Revelation offers hope as we explore the ultimate defeat of evil through Jesus Christ’s victory over death. There will be time for personal reflection and group sharing.
