Spirituality on Film: The Realities of God’s Grace

November 11, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - November 16, 2018 @ 1:00 pm


This silent, guided retreat will focus on two themes, intertwined: the ‘reality/ies of Grace’ and ‘film as both art and parable.’ Together we will reflect on the various aspects of ‘real Grace’ as experienced in our concrete daily lives – our own ‘lived stories’ alive with Grace.  Morning presentations and evening film screenings will encourage us to pray with God’s movements in our lives, including through the power of the art of films as parables of Grace.
Topics include:
✥ The power of ‘real Grace’
✥ How does Grace change us?
✥ Integrating the ‘un-gracious’ experiences of life
✥ The ‘ascensions of Grace in Love
✥ Can ‘anything/everything be different’ with Grace?
✥ Extensions of Grace into the world/creation

Schedule will allow for quiet times of prayer, reflection, journaling, and
daily Eucharist. Handouts (including focus points for each film) will be
available. For those interested, a new option will offer the opportunity
for group exchanges of our prayer and film experiences. Please bring a
Bible and notebook or journal.

Date & Time: Sun., Nov. 11 at 5pm through Fri., Nov. 16 at 1pm
Presenter: Michael Laratonda
Fee: $475
