The leadership team of the NC Academy for Spiritual Formation would like to invite you to join us September 25-30, 2022 for our next North Carolina 5-Day Academy for Spiritual Formation. We will meet at The Trinity Retreat Center at Pine Knoll Shores on North Carolina’s beautiful Crystal Coast, and we will also offer a virtual option. Our presenting faculty for this year are Rev. Jeremy Troxler and Rev. Dr. Velda Love.
Rev. Jeremy Troxler's focus for the week will be: “The Widow's Way: Pursuing Justice and Peace through Persistent Prayer and Direct Relationship" and Rev. Dr. Velda Love's focus for the week will be "Radical Spirituality and Radical Self-Care: Caring for and Healing Black and Brown Bodies".
Both of these presenters will bring authentic and gifted witness to their chosen areas of teaching. Our days together will flow in a rhythm of worship, shared meals, teaching, and reflection; punctuated by delicious shared meals and the celebration of holy communion. We will make time in each day for rest and wonder, with corporate sharing in small groups each evening.
We believe that spiritual formation is not an exclusive opportunity for the “spiritually enlightened,” but a life-giving necessity for all who wish to be “conformed into the image of Christ for the sake of others”. Making room in our lives to listen for God’s voice, meditate on scripture, reflect, share, worship, walk, and wonder is a part of what it means to be alive in Christ. We hope you will join us.
