Names of God
Aug 14 @ 7:00 pm – Aug 15 @ 3:00 pm
Names of God @ Ferdinand | Indiana | United States

The Bible is full to bursting with amazing names for God; names that shed new light on the mysterious and wonderful nature of the Divine.  Jeremiah 18:5 calls God a Potter, Psalm 22:9 likens God to a Midwife; Hosea 13:8 names God as a Bear; and The Gospel of John 6:35 names God as Bread (of Life).  How can the little-used names for God inspire our praying and increase our understanding of the Living God?  Join me as we pray beyond the names “Lord” and “Father” and follow the Bible into the abundance of ways to imagine and speak to God.  Together we will find little used metaphors for God and share our transformations as we pray using some of those names.  Our time together will be both meditative and lively!

Presenter: Emily Askew teaches theology at Lexington Theological Seminary, a Disciples of Christ seminary in Lexington, KY.  She has cherished attending private and group retreats with the Sisters of St. Benedict for the past 20 years.

Time:  The retreat begins at 7:00 p.m. and ends on Thursday at 3:00 p.m.

Place:  Benedictine Hospitality Center, Monastery Immaculate Conception, Ferdinand, IN 47532

Cost:  $140.00 Includes meals, private rooms, and the program.

Scholarships: Scholarship monies for programs and spiritual direction are available through the
generosity of donors and friends. For an application over the phone call 812-367-1411 ext. 7345.
