From the Friends Center Brochure:
A compass makes a good metaphor for our spiritual lives and the work of discerning God’s will for us. Keeping our soul’s eyes on the sacred compass leads us to the holy discovery that we can move through life with purpose and promise, even in those times when we may not sense with certainty what the purpose and promise are. The Divine compass points us to the mind and love of God. In a grace-filled way, our compass invites us into a life of continuous experiences of God and of spiritual transformation.
This guided retreat, based on Brent’s book Sacred Compass, will be an interactive opportunity to see where the Holy Spirit has led and is leading us. All of the sessions combine worship, thoughts from Brent’s book, individual spiritual work, and small group experiences.
