2021 Journey Center Association’s Annual Gatherings
The Journey Center invitation is “Come as You Are, Encounter the Holy, See What Happens!”
As we find ourselves in the midst of an ongoing pandemic that has changed so much, we have discerned that this year’s theme (See What Happens!) is an invitation from the Spirit to gather virtually throughout the year. Though we will miss being together in person, we know that connecting in this way will keep us journeying together. These connections will deepen our relationships, encourage us to live into the Journey Center’s core values and help us listen together as God calls us to be there in unique ways for a world that so needs the gifts we offer.
Our quarterly gatherings will be for reconnecting, sharing stories and engaging in spiritual practice and deep listening together.
The other monthly gatherings give us the blessing of being together and experiencing one of the Journey Center’s core values, as we listen to each other and God’s Spirit. (Our October gathering will be a half-day retreat as we explore the core values of Silence and Solitude).
These gatherings will take place on Zoom. A one-time registration fee will give access to all the gatherings in 2021. This fee is $55 per person ($50 for Associates, $45 for Members). Register by clicking on the “Register” button above. For more information, please contact Joanna Quintrell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
