About the Retreat-
Job, Jonah and Judith are often misunderstood books of the Bible but their main characters can be wonderful spiritual role models for dealing with life’s ups and downs. Themes from suffering, trust, courage, hope, mercy and liberation can guide us in discovering more about our relationship with God and our faith—a perfect Lenten exploration. We’ll consider that while not everything has an explanation, everything does have a purpose!
Join us this Lent as we make new friends of Job, Jonah and Judith—you don’t even need to have read the books!
