Navigating suffering and complex emotions is challenging when living in a world that tells us to avoid pain and where loneliness is at an all-time high. Why do we suffer? Why me? How do I stop feeling this way? Why does God feel far away?

At our spring retreat, we will explore these kinds of questions. We will learn about why we suffer, spiritual highs and lows, navigating loneliness, dependency on God, and choosing joy and gratitude in the face of suffering.
