Series: Holy Resistance, Sacred Surrender
Our faith journey includes not just surrender but also resistance. A common belief is that we are called to surrender to God’s will and that our resistance is an obstacle to overcome. In this retreat, we will look at Scripture passages and other writings as we consider whether that is true. What if resistance is as much our call as surrender? What if hanging on is as pivotal as letting go? These queries and others will help us explore the interplay of surrender, resistance and our relationship with the Divine.
