Retreat 3 - May 5 "God's Loving Look"

Welcome to share the Bible, prayer and worship on Sandvikengården

Man has always sought ways to get back "to himself," to draw strength or seek recovery. Often we focus
us on the body and what it needs, but if we are to go all the way, we must also think of the soul. One way to do that is through the retreat. It is an opportunity to give yourself a few days to live in seclusion and tranquility. An opportunity to catch up with yourself, get time
to reflect on what is important in life and to listen to and be close to God.
Swedish church, ETUC and Sandvikengården invites to quiet days together with Jesus. The retreat invites reflection on
how we take advantage of our lives, and how we live the Gospel.

A break from everyday life

In today's society goes much of our time is spent communicating with other people. Ping e-mails, phone calls, radio and TV broadcasts around the clock. The world is big and we want to keep up. Modern man is constantly connected, constantly reachable. But amid this whirl of information, it is easy to lose grip on the soul.

On the retreat

Going on retreat is that for a few days shy away. Jesus sought out sometimes to places to rest and gather strength. (Mark 6: 31). At the retreat is the soul and the spiritual center of attention. Most of the time you are in silence. That way you get a chance to listen inward to their own thoughts retreat is also an opportunity to reflect on their faith and discover more of who God is. The days divided and given rhythm by means of devotions, meditation and meals. In between, there is silence and own time for reflection.

Karin and Bengt Kylberg live in Karlstad and are engaged in the West Coast Church. At Sandvikengården we have been to retreat earlier.
It's a good place to stay up and listen inward. It can provide clarity and new entrances in the labyrinth of life.

Niklas Lindén

My name is Niklas Lindén and is pastor in Tallå church in Edane, which is part of the equmenia church. 1982 I meet Franciscan spirituality which became a great source of inspiration because Francisus emphasizes the joy, love and simplicity. Here comes the retreat into my life that I also encourage others to. To seek God in prayer and listen to His voice.
