our retreats

Retreat, reflect, restore…but in relaxed ambiance and conversation with a small group of others at the newly created Spent Dandelion Monthly Retreats!

Over a spread of three days and two nights, we will savor good conversation, delicious cuisine, and wide and varied North Shore offerings.

Each retreat, while different in teachings, is uniform in cost and cancellation policy and follows the same general schedule.

Radical Faith

July 28, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - July 30, 2019 @ 11:00 am CDT

$125 – $225

In certain company, the word ‘radical’ raises eyebrows and hackles.

Turns out, though, that it’s as innocent as a radish—which, as it is, happens to be related to the word radical, because they both share the same word-parent: radix, which means ‘root.’

So if you’re, say, a radical Christian, it only means that you’re rooted in your faith.

At the height of summer, when the gardens are beginning to burst with roots and shoots, it seems a good opportunity to reflect on the roots of our faith, and what that history means for understanding the radicality of our faith in these restless times, and how that can shoot through our lives and into the world.

(As radical as I am, I don’t like radishes, but just for kicks, I’ll have a stash of them for people to get in touch with their rootedness.)
