SoulStream presents:

God: Closer than we imagine – A Saturday Retreat

Saturday, September 23, 2017

A facilitated retreat offering teaching, periods of silent reflection and prayer, as well as group sharing (optional).

Be still and know that I am God –Psalm 46:10

The Bible tells us that we are never separated from God.  But do we really believe it?  Discover how attentiveness and stillness deepen our awareness of God’s presence in our day-to-day lives. Whether you are new to contemplative prayer or not, come and give yourself the opportunity to take some time out, step back and recharge! Guiding us will be SoulStream partners, Christopher Chiu and Esther Hizsa.

Christopher Chiu is a spiritual director and has a Masters of Arts in Theological Studies from Regent College. He is a partner with City in Focus in the retreat ministries and Program Coordinator of Jesuit Spirituality Apostolate of Vancouver.

Esther Hizsa is a spiritual director and writer with an MDiv from Regent College. She is on the Leadership Team of SoulStream and co-facilitates Living from the Heart (Lower Mainland course). Esther posts weekly on her blog An Everyday Pilgrim and is the author of Stories of an Everyday Pilgrim.
