Wrestling with God: Resistance and Acquiescence in our Journey

February 7 @ 9:00 AM – February 10 @ 6:00 PM$150.00


9th Annual International Retreat with Rev. Ron Rolheiser, OMI

Monday, February 7, 2022 – Thursday, February 10, 2022 | ONLINE EVENT

What do God and love ask of us? That can be answered in a single word, Surrender. But much inside of us resists, wanting its own way; so goes the journey. Jacob wrestled an entire night with God; the great prophets often said to God, Thy will be changed; Jesus himself sweated blood in Gethsemane, asking God to change his will; and even in our most intimate relationships we still resist losing our independence. Our journey in faith and in love is a constant struggle between resistance and surrender. What drives this? What is healthy and what is not? Understanding God, understanding ourselves, understanding our struggle, and understanding love.
