Parables Retreat: Storytelling for Our Time. 4-6 May 2018. Burns Lodge at Holy Cross.
What is a parable and how did Jesus use them to teach his disciples? How can we as Jesus’s disciples today apply these parables to our Church and our lives? These are some of the questions 15 participants grappled with on retreat at Burns Lodge at Holy Cross in early May. We explored how Jesus used common everyday images to get us thinking creatively about the Kingdom of God in the here and now. It was a weekend of deep sharing and searching out how to live our Gospel mission today.
