When Bad Things Happen… The Book of Job for Troubled Times

October 13, 2023 - October 14, 2023

- $75.00 – $135.00

with Peter Watkins M. Div. certified spiritual director and retreat leader located in St. Paul and on staff with the Benedictine Center of St. Paul’s Monastery. During this retreat we will courageously ask, “What do I do with my pain?” and “Where is God in suffering?” With the story of Job as our guide, we will gently and honestly reflect on how we make meaning of life in light of a God of love and compassion. Job’s story is our story. His soulful search for answers cuts right through superficial platitudes and cliches. It speaks to our hearts, and it helps guide us on a path toward real hope.
