Feeling like you need a time out? Busy lives often leave us feeling tired, lacklustre and spiritually empty. A Slow Down Day is your opportunity to rest your body and refresh your spirit. Each day consists of thought-provoking presentations on a spiritual topic combined with ample time for personal reflection and prayer; small group faith sharing is an option. Come slow down with us by following the Star to an oasis of peace.
“I believe in the Holy Spirit.” The familiar words roll off our tongues every time we recite the Creed, but do we ever stop to think about what we are saying? Who is this ‘Holy Spirit’, the third person of the Trinity, the ‘Lord and Giver of Life’? Referenced in Scripture as fire, wind and Ruah/the breath of God, the Spirit comes as a transforming power into our lives. Together we will unpack Church teaching about the Spirit and reflect on the Spirit’s presence in our lives as we extend the invitation, “Come, Holy Spirit.’
9:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
