Little Things that Fill the Whole World:
Gospel Metaphors of Spiritual Awakening

Many of us today are looking for ways to deepen our experience of God's presence in our lives. In this silent retreat we will accept Jesus' invitation to find God's presence in the little things of everyday life. Time will be given for group meditation, personal reflection and discussion of the themes presented.

The topics covered in the conferences include:
  • Childlike acceptance
  • Listening
  • A pure heart
  • A reed shaken by the wind
  • Veronica's veil
  • The empty tomb
  • The woman at the well
Suggested Reading
