Retreat for Caregivers
This retreat deals with the complexities of caregiving and the challenges involved while using scriptural models to gain strength.
Everyone will be a caregiver, need a caregiver, or know a caregiver at some point in life. Yet it is a position we seldom prepare for financially, emotionally, or spiritually. This retreat deals with the complexities of caregiving and the challenges involved.
Questions to be addressed include:
- Where can we find God during illness?
- How can we grow with God amidst suffering?
- How can we prepare spiritually to give care?
This retreat will help you approach caregiving with new awareness and sensitivity, direct you towards new resources, and equip you with coping techniques.
Using scriptural models we will explore the deeper spiritual aspects of caregiving, thus gaining valuable insight to strengthen us.
