Men’s Retreat 2023
Speaking the Truth in Love: Finding the True Self’s Home Once More
FRIDAY EVENING THROUGH SUNDAY NOON, NOVEMBER 10–12, 2023, at Camp Huston, Union WA
Registration required. Capacity is limited to 30, first-come, first-served.
Facilitated Dean Steve Thomason
We hear a lot these days about patriarchy and the ways men are raised to behave in culturally-expected ways that are not life-giving. We are taught that communication forms along a binary of aggression or weakness, but there are healthier ways to speak our truth assertively. God is calling us to something else, to be someone else—to be our true selves while respecting the dignity of others. How we communicate matters.
This weekend retreat is designed to create the space for quiet reflection, time away from the burdens of daily life, spacious time in nature, conversations with other men of faith, and worship. It will be a time of spiritual reflection and renewal. Steve Thomason, Dean of Saint Mark’s Cathedral, will facilitate the weekend to which men of all ages are welcome.
Fee: $230 double occupancy, $275 single; includes two nights lodging and all meals. Partial scholarships are available. Space is limited to 30, available first-come, first-serve. A $100 non-refundable deposit is required to hold your space. Payment in full is due October 1, 2023. Reserve your space by submitting this form and paying the deposit. Contact Dean Thomason (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.
