Holy Ground: Encountering Jesus in Sacred Geography

August 18, 2017 - August 19, 2017 Grace Episcopal Church Chadron, Nebraska

The 2017 Province VI ECW retreat will explore themes through scripture, prayer, creativity, and story-sharing. Set within the sacred geography of western Nebraska’s big skies and vistas, we’ll reflect on what it means to follow Jesus in the center of America:

• What does it mean to be “grounded” in faith?

• How does our sense of place influence our experience of God?

• What is unique about being the Body of Christ in Province VI— it’s rolling hills, sweeping plains, small communities, and towering mountains?

August 18-19, 2017

Grace Episcopal Church Chadron, NE

Friday: Registration & Social Hour 4-6 p.m. through Saturday: Closing Eucharist 3-4 p.m.
