What Is God Inviting?
Howard Thurman as Exemplar of Growth and Change
The life and writings of Dr. Howard Thurman offer valuable wisdom and insights into how to respond to suffering and injustice in today’s world. Our weekend journey through his life, from young Florida contemplative to prominent international spiritual leader, will provide time to consider his famous question: “What is mine to do?”
Dr. Lerita Coleman Brown (peaceforhearts.com), Professor Emerita and spiritual director, will lead (via teleconference) our sessions on the impact of Dr. Thurman’s spirituality. She will invite you, as spiritual directors, to explore where we are being called to help bring unity in today’s world.
We will have plenty of private contemplative time, opportunities for group processing, and Audire staff support around living into how you, as spiritual directors, are called to re-vision the common unity of all God’s holy creation.
A Commencement Ceremony to honor Audire’s 2022 graduating Class will follow the retreat on Sunday morning. Attendance is optional.
Check-in will begin at 3 p.m. on Friday in the lobby of the Main Building. This is where you will pick up your room key and retreat packet, and begin to relax and enjoy the weekend. The first session of the retreat will begin at 5 pm.
If you have food allergies or other special dietary considerations or other questions about the retreat, please contact Kathy Lieffort (Kathy@AudireSpiritualDirection.org) ASAP so she can apprise Canterbury.
