Preached Retreat- with Virginia Herbers

The Questions Jesus Asked
Monday, July 17
Sunday, July 23
King’s House Retreat

In our prayer we often ask God many questions: what are you inviting me to do?  How might I best answer the call?  When is the right time to speak and to stay silent?  The same was true for people who encountered Jesus in the Gospels.  They asked him, How are we to pray?  Who are you?  How shall we recognize the signs of your coming?  But sometime, Jesus was the one asking the questions.  “Who do you say I am?”  “Do you want to be healed?”  What are you looking for?”  This retreat will explore the questions Jesus asked, looking at their context and content, but also hearing them asked anew – to us,  in our current context of life, love, and discipleship.
