|Description:||Jesus' most sustained piece of teaching on discipleship and living the life of the Kingdom is found in His Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7). And yet we can pass over this critically important teaching or just touch the surface of it through an occasional sermon or reference.|
This retreat will focus on the relevance of Jesus’ teaching for us here and now, asking, what does he say? How are we to make sense of his teaching? And what are the consequences for our daily life? There will be plenty of space for stillness and silence, for discussion and even the odd film.
