God’s Mission is Communion: SSFM Retreat

Stevenson School for Ministry will host an in-person retreat at Good Shepherd Retreat House. Collin Cornell, PhD, will guide the weekend along the theme of God’s Mission is Communion. In lectures and workshops, we will explore the state of mission: how the Anglican Communion and the ecumenical churches discern what God is doing in the world and what Holy Scripture contributes to that conversation. We will especially consider mission defined in terms of divine repair—God’s work of reconciling, healing, emancipating—and mission defined according to communion, God’s will to draw close to creatures. The retreat will include the rhythms of the daily office, fellowship, meals together, and opportunities for rest.

This retreat offers the chance to pursue patterns of shared community living, learning, and prayer. All Retreat House rooms are reserved for the SSFM community. Please select which housing option you’d like in your registration process and note any dietary restrictions. More details on the room options can be found on the House website. Hotels are also nearby if you’d prefer to be a commuter participant with us.
