Spiritual Formation Retreat


  • Caritas Center
Register March 19, 2016 9:30 am March 19, 2016 4:30 pm America/New_York Spiritual Formation Retreat

As we seek to join Jesus in His work of justice this Lent, we also have an opportunity to become like Jesus. Jesus can transform our tiredness into refreshment; our burnout into hope. Spiritual formation is a great way to care for our souls as we love and serve others. On Saturday, 3/19, you are invited to an ECV Spiritual Formation Day from 9:30am – 4:30pm at the Caritas Center in Hamden. There will be a light breakfast and lunch. The actual cost is $20 but feel free to pay what you can. Kids are welcome. Bill Elander, the Pastor of New Haven Vineyard, and his wife Lanie Elander, co-planter, will lead us in our day together. They have led numerous spiritual retreats and have been great partners and friends with ECV. What Is Spiritual Formation? Spiritual Formation is the intentional pursuit to become more like Christ through our lifestyle and through a set of practices. Spiritual formation is always happening. It is simply a question of “How is your spirit currently being formed?” Why Is It Needed? Our lives are overun with activities, busyness, relationships, work, and more. None of these things are outright bad, but they can clutter our lives and leave us unable to answer the question, “How is your soul?” Spiritual formation aims to de-clutter our lives in order to see what remains when we are able to sit with ourselves and God. How Is It Connected to Lent? Our Lenten theme this year is ‘This Is True Religion.’ As we join Jesus and pursue justice in our neighborhood and our world, we’ll notice that we cannot run on our own energy or passion alone. In addition to joining Jesus in His work, we need to become like Jesus. Jesus can transform our tiredness into refreshment; our burnout into hope. Spiritual formation is a great way to care for our souls even as we hope to love and serve others.
