Event Details



Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.

Matthew 11:28-30 (MSG)


A number of pastors, priests & worship leaders that we’ve been talking to over the last couple years are dreaming and experimenting with new (old) ways of aligning historic Christian practices with the modern world.  What if we gathered together a number of us for a couple days to explore what “unforced rhythms of Grace” look like in our personal lives, and in our churches?  

The Living Christ invites us to follow him into unforced rhythms of Grace for the sake of the world. But the reality is, many of us in ministry don't always live these rhythms, and we're not helping our communities live them either.  Right beliefs are important but can only take us so far; we need to learn how to put Jesus' invitation into practice.

Join us for a two day retreat hosted by The Practice and Fr. Michael Sparough at Bellarmine Jesuit Retreat House in Barrington, IL for a time of intimate conversation, practice, spiritual direction, and practical dreaming about what it means for us to each live our lives aligned to Christ in every moment, and build communities who can do the same.
