Slow Galilee

19th – 26th April 2022

In simple trust like theirs who heard beside the Syrian sea, the gracious calling of the Lord….

After the trauma of Coronavirus I hope you might be interested in coming with me to hear that ‘gracious calling of the Lord’ on a week’s retreat right by the Sea of Galilee. I think we all deserve some deep healing after 2020 and 2021 and I can think of nowhere as powerful for this as the Sea of Galilee. It will be a time to linger, reflect and rest in the region where Jesus spent nearly all of those three enthralling years teaching, healing and gathering his faithful team before turning fatefully towards Jerusalem.
The context will be a gently guided retreat with plenty of space, staying at the beautiful Pilgerhaus that’s been so popular with those I’ve taken in the past. Right on the Sea of Galilee this place is a joy and will be the perfect base for exploring the encounters Jesus had at Tabgha, St Peter’s Primacy, Capernaum, the Mount of Beatitudes, the Mount of Transfiguration, and Magdala. We’ll go to church in Nazareth on Sunday, and of course we’ll go out on the Sea itself and sing! The unspoilt beauty of Galilee and the amazing story of Jesus should make this a unique experience for those who want to go deeper into the heart of their faith.
