Friday 28th February – Sunday 1st March 2020

At Dowry House Retreat, High St, Walsingham, NR22 6BZ

 

There is more in scripture than simply ink on the page; this “word of the Lord” is able to bring us into the presence of the divine Word, the one who brought the spinning galaxies into being and whose nail-marked hands are stretched out towards us in love. Other books may speak of God, but the Bible uniquely is able to become for us a holy ground on which we actually meet with God.

A Word-Centered Life, a life which is evangelical in the very best sense of that word—shaped by the Gospel, and passionately seeking to hear Christ, know Christ, share Christ with others—such a life must always be deeply grounded in Scripture. Psalm 1 offers a perfect description of a Word-Centered people:

“their delight is in the law of the Lord,
and on his law they meditate day and night.
They are like trees
planted by streams of water,
which yield their fruit in its season,
and their leaves do not wither.” (v. 2-3)

This weekend will help us drive deep roots into the refreshing waters of the biblical text, so that we might become more deeply rooted and grounded in Christ. We need to learn to come to the Bible in order to meet Jesus, especially during this year dedicated to the Word.

In addition to the basic cost of board and lodging an extra donation of £10 per day (£20 for the weekend) will be invited as a contribution to the work of the COLW Sisters who will be leading the retreat. Please call 01328 801018 or email dowryhouse@walsingham.org.uk for further information.
