Rhythms Emphasis
Ministers Council Pastor's Conference
August 22 – 25, 2016
Washington DC area

Contemplation is the spring of living water, and action is the stream that flows out from it to others; it is the same water.

- Thomas Merton


Rhythms of the Spirit

Do you struggle for balance between prayer and activity?
Do you long for more silence and solitude in your life and ministry?
More energy for compassion, peace and justice?

This conference, offered in a retreat style and in two locations for 2016, provides a unique opportunity to explore and practice the contemplative life together.

We'll focus on your own spiritual practice providing time to develop solitude and silence, creating the expansive space necessary to welcome God's voice. If you desire spiritual direction, each conference will provide the opportunity for you to meet one-on-one with a spiritual companion.

We hope you can join us.
