PLACE: Lindenwood Retreat and Conference Center, Donaldson, IN

DATES: Sept.20-22, 2013

DESCRIPTION: Spiritual Friendship: A Theology of Relationship: Spiritual Friendships come in a variety of forms. No matter if the context is light or deeply intimate, spiritual friendships are not about what people do but about who people are. But what is the difference between an acquaintance and a spiritual friend? How do we know when a regular friendship has the potential to transform into a significant connection? This retreat will delve into just that. Through specific examples, wisdom of theologians and funny stories, Tim O'Brien and Marci Madary will guide participants to understand why some friendships stand the test of time while others are only for a season. For more information go to: or call (574) 935-1780.

DESCRIPTION: Choosing Compassion: The Paradox of Power: Transforming your life through Compassion: Many times, power in various forms control or defines our way of relating. But power is more than a force preventing us from doing something. It's also a force for creativity and wisdom -a force that Christians should desire for themselves, their families, and their communities. Power understood properly can lead us to compassion and with compassion we redeem our negative use of power. During this weekend retreat/workshop experience, Fr. Michael Crosby, 0.F.M will help us explore ourselves and our understanding and use of power. For more information go to: or call (574) 935-1780.
