Event description

Description

What causes homelessness? What gives hope to men and women living on the streets? If these questions stir your spirit, consider joining the staff, residents, and friends of the Community First! Village for a two-night Street Retreat. This package begins a staff-led talk that will invite participants to unpack the roots of homelessness, reaching past stereotypes to see the forces shaping the entire culture that are powerfully felt by our brothers and sisters on the street. Such an approach helps us see how we might participate with God’s loving work through our own gifts and efforts.

The Winter Street Retreat is an opportunity to engage our brothers and sisters on the street and to seek the face of God during a time of the year when the days are short and the weather can sometimes be brutally cold or rainy. This is not a homeless simulation however. The Winter Street Retreat has no purpose but to invite participants into an encounter with God through the unwalled retreat center of the City of Austin and in the face of our brothers and sister on the street. Bring a warm sleeping bag, a coat, and warm socks - come and meet God.
