Encounter Weekend 2016
We are made for very good encounters.
Encounters with ourselves, creation, each other and with God. We were made to live in a world where shalom/wholeness defined all these relationships, yet we now live in a very fractured world, where many of those relationships are broken and in turmoil. The good news is that God has come to us in that turmoil and wants to know us, speak with us and bring wholeness in relationships once again.
This weekend is a space and place to pursue the goodness in those relationships, and to encounter the compassionate Creator God who can transform, heal and re-create us. We will learn, experiment with, and practice some ancient ways by which the church has listened to, heard and encountered God:
- Listening Prayer
- Group Spiritual Direction
- Sabbath Rest
We will live the weekend together in community, enjoying the goodness of shared meals, playing in nature/canoeing and kayaking on the ocean, with space to meet some new folks. There will also be space for study for those who will need it. Bonus: We will be joined in the weekend by our mainland IVCF brothers and sisters from UBC and SFU. So, come encounter goodness together!
Location: Pioneer Pacific Camp, Thetis Island. The camp is located in a beautiful and scenic bay on Thetis island and is a picturesque place to enjoy west coast goodness. IVCF is connected with Pioneer Camps across the country, but we think we have the most beautiful location:)
