This retreat is for those asking, ‘how do we sing the Lord’s song in a strange land?’ and ‘how then shall we live?’ whilst living at the edge of ‘empire’. The empire is the system that we are part of, yet which we often feel alienated from. We will explore how to live faithfully within the economic system of the empire and how to relate to a church that has been shaped by empire.

Drawing inspiration from the prophet Jeremiah and from the desert fathers and mothers we will combine contemplation, creativity and conversation to explore appropriate responses, alone and together.
