Invitation to Retreat / Fall 2020
November 20-22, 2020
Walburga Abbey, Virginia Dale, Colorado
This retreat is based on a class taught by Charlie Dodrill at Denver Seminary a couple years ago. We will trace the steps of some of the early monastic people as we open our own hearts and lives to what–and Who–gripped theirs. We will learn together, eat together, practice silence together, sing together (along with the nuns during their daily offices), and process all of it together as we do so. It will be a time of exterior silence and (hopefully) interior awakening of a longing we may or may not know is there to know Him more intimately and be known by Him.
Simple meals will be provided by the sisters at the Abbey. Rooms will all be single rooms. Cost will be $135 per person for the weekend (which includes food and lodging).
Space is limited to 12 participants, so please sign up quickly.

What would it be like to walk on the same cobblestones Jesus walked on two thousand years ago? In March 2020 a group from Platt Park Church will be traveling to Israel. The 12-day tour will feature many historic sites from Jesus’ ministry in addition to important historical sites of the Jewish and Christian faiths. This is the trip of a lifetime and we want you to join. Whether you’ve been thinking about traveling to Israel for a while now or whether this is the first time you’ve ever considered it check out the video and email Sandy Laws with any questions.

The Daily Practice
The Daily Practice is a devotional tool from Platt Park Church for developing the habit of daily time with God.
Learning to love God takes practice. Just like exercising a muscle, our hearts are trained to love from the bottom up, through the formation of our habits and practices. Discipleship is about curating our hearts to love God and the things that God loves. Forces of our culture train us to love things other than God all the time, but spiritual practices help us to be attentive and intentional about what my heart really loves and desires. Following Jesus is more a matter of hungering and thirsting than of knowing and believing and it is our habit forming practices that form our desires over time. May this daily practice tune your heart to sing His praise.
