Replenish: Since March, it seems our world has been turned upside down. At the very least, the foundations of what we knew to be stable in our lives have been shaken, and we've needed to adapt to a new normal that itself seems constantly to be shifting. Scripture reveals to us that these kinds of situations happened to God's people many times throughout history, and that it is possible to thrive in the face of changing circumstances. This retreat will zero in on how we can adapt to the adversity we face, how we can respond to seemingly impossible situations, how we can build resilience into our lives, how we can solidify rhythms that are life-giving, and how we can represent Jesus well when our feet are being held to the fire.
