Conference Retreat with the Monastic Community
It is a rhetorical question that Proverbs asks: “Does not Wisdom call?” (8:1). Indeed, Wisdom calls—in Scripture, in the Rule of Benedict, in the stories of our individual and communal journeys. Wisdom calls us to listen broadly, to make connections, to weave a seamless whole from apparent scattered threads. When we “listen with the ear of our heart,” we see and hear God in the smallest of things—always and everywhere, God with us! Sharing her love for scripture, story, and Benedictine spirituality, Mary Stommes will invite us simply to listen, to pause and reflect—to see and hear anew the manifold ways that God is with us. Past, present and future. Holy, holy, holy.
Dates: Sunday, June 5, 7 p.m., through Friday, June 10, 5 p.m.
