“Exploring Our Images of God”

$10 payable at door bring lunch
Mini Retreat Description:
“Humankind was created as God’s reflection: in the divine image God created them; female and male, God made them.” (Genesis 1:27)
We are made in the image of God but what are our “images” of God? Our stories and our life experiences help to form our images of God. We will explore our images of God – healing images, forgiving images, compassionate images, powerful images and many others – and how these images affect our relationship with God. We desire to develop and further our relationship with God through prayer, meditation and contemplation. Naming and understanding our images of God will assist us in drawing closer to God.
