WS III – Surrendering to God’s Will in the Present Moment – Residential or ZOOM
Friday 9 July 2021 @ 5pm
Ends: Sunday 11 July 2021 @ 2pm
The third of a series of weekends to enable people enter more deeply into the spirituality of Walsingham, learning in particular what it means to surrender to God’s Will in one’s life and to live a spirituality of thanksgiving for all that God does for us.
Retreatants can participate from the comfort of their homes via zoom or in Dowry House where personal accompaniment from one of the sisters will also be on offer.
When we know we are loved by someone, deeply loved by them, we can trust their decisions regarding us, even if we don’t always understand their reasons. The same is the case in relation to God. The saying ‘Let go and let God’ is often quoted and yet so easy to accomplish. It is only when we stop relying on our need to control, to know, to be perfect, that we begin to taste the joy of allowing God to work freely in our hearts and lives.
This weekend will provide practical anecdotes and tools to help grow in a life-giving spirit of surrender to God. When our hearts are empty of self and the above needs, like the Holy House of Walsingham, God’s Spirit can enter in and take us to places we could never even begin to imagine.
