Program

Jesus, You Have Called Us to Follow You –Scripture Reflections on the Prayer of Faith and Light

As Faith and Light celebrates 50 years of wonderful life, we are invited to “Share the Treasure” that God has blessed us with. The Faith and Light Prayer has been part of the tradition for decades and is prayed often and in many corners of the world. This prayer has dimensions and depth that go far beyond any one retreat experience. This retreat presents an opportunity to go deeper into the scope and meaning of this prayer, and to discover some of the richness that permeates its words. We will use stories, examples and biblical texts to explore the prayer’s major themes, which are universal, and to open ourselves to the transformative action of God’s Spirit. Jesus calls us, and we want to say, “Yes.”  This is not always easy, but it always leads to growth.

Practical Information:
This retreat will be offered online over a period of seven days (optional eight days), and will comprise: 
- six inspirational talks by Tim Buckley by video link (sent in advance) for six days of the retreat.
