Description

Signs of Life Retreat

Saturday, November 2, 2019
9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

$50 per person (lunch and Eucharist included), VTS Community Members - $20

Worship engages our deepest human needs and has the power to transform our lives. Join us in a retreat that explores five signs and symbols at the heart of Christian worship: light, water, food, shelter, and community.

This offering encourages each of us to explore the riches of our worship traditions, liturgy and sacraments, and the art and architecture of our worship spaces, revealing the full meaning of these signs, deepening our experience of Christian vocation, and guiding us toward ongoing conversion.

The materials used for this offering have been designed and produced by the Society of Saint John the Evangelist, a religious order for men in the Episcopal Church, and by Lifelong Learning at Virginia Theological Seminary in Alexandria, Virginia.

About the Retreat Leader:

Charlotte Hand Greeson is the Associate for Building Faith in Lifelong Learning at VTS, where she focuses on forming and equipping congregational leaders. Charlotte shares her passion for formation as a manager and editor for buildfaith.org and curator of Christian education curriculum resources. In addition, she serves as program manager, representing VTS in its collaboration with the Society of St. John the Evangelist in developing formation resources for the wider church. She is an experienced writer, curriculum developer, and workshop and retreat leader. Charlotte takes seriously Paul’s injunction in his letter to the Romans to “Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep,” by living this out in social media ministry. A 24-year military spouse, she has lived in many different communities and experienced the Episcopal church in varied contexts.




Virginia Theological Seminary is a place for all people. We strive to be inviting to able-bodied people and people with disabilities. If you require campus and event accessibility information, please contact Lifelong Learning at lifelonglearning@vts.edu or 703-461-1885.
