Join us Dec 8th from 8:30am-12pm for a viewing and discussion of The Shack. Movie will start promptly at 8:45 am, followed by a discussion led by Chris Day and Bob Colaresi. We ask for a free-will offering to defray cost of snacks and the room. This powerful movie is the story of a father’s transformative spiritual journey – from his own abuse as a young man, to a family tragedy which spirals in a crisis of faith, life’s purpose, and the existence of God.
In our lives we often awaken to the question “What does all this mean?” and “Have I really mattered?” This retreat will look at five words that stand in the place of such a lifelong search: Gather, Connect, Center, Release and Serve. The larger international men’s group called Illuman, to which IN/MI MALES belongs as a chapter, sees these five words as touchstones for authentic male spirituality.

This retreat will give us hints as to what this enduring journey might look like through reflection, small and large group sharing, ritual and time together in mutual support. It may give affirmation to where you are right now and challenge you to move on. It may call you to more profound ways of seeing life and relationship and challenge male stereotypes that trap us. It is an opportunity to gather and connect so that we do matter and life is better for our having lived it.
