Student Christian Movement of Canada - Turning Tables: A Young Adults Retreat on Jesus and Liberation

Event Date: 
Friday, September 30, 2016 (All day) - Sunday, October 2, 2016 (All day)

We invite you to “Turning Tables”– a fall retreat for young adults (18-35yrs) to explore what our Christian journey could look like if we engaged our minds, our spirit and the world around us. How does one live the faith-based life in the here and now while still yearning for the kin-dom of heaven?

We will explore the theme of Think, Pray, Love to tie our political and personal convictions with our faith rooted in the story of Jesus and the Resurrection.

It’s also a chance to meet other young adults from across Toronto who are passionate about faith-based justice!

Day 1: THINK – First we will explore our personal and political convictions about the world. We will look at our diverse identities as the body of Christ. What does feminism, anti-racism and gender justice have to do with it all? How do we understand our position in a world that values money and status over justice and peace?

Day 2: PRAY– Then we will reflect on our need to nourish our spirit and to connect with God and creation to prepare us for the journey.

Day 3: LOVE– Finally, we will examine what Jesus meant when he said ‘love your neighbour as yourself’ in the context of the Bible and then our context of our world today.

In partnership with the Anglican Diocese of Toronto, Toronto South West and Southeast Presbyteries of the United Church of Canada, and the Ecumenical Chaplaincy at U of T.

Bus leaves from downtown Toronto. Cost: $40.

Registration includes bus ride, stay in shared cabins, all meals and beautiful wooded surroundings!
