With an emphasis on marriage and family within the church today, the value of singleness among God's people is often lost. Those who are not yet married or those who were formerly married can be made to feel like second-class citizens in the kingdom of God. This is not the case. The Christian life is not about finding “our better half” but encountering the One who completes us. The tradition of the Christian mystics teaches us this. This workshop will explore the spiritual significance of singleness by embracing meditation of creation as a way to find wholeness with the Creator. Like St. Francis of Assisi, time in nature reminds us that we are never alone, but connected with all that God has made. The nature of singleness is wholeness found in meditation of creation.

As Christians, sometimes we can give so much that it overwhelms us. We'll explore what it means to be others-focused and also keep healthy boundaries so that we preserve our strength to continue living out the Christian life.
