Twilight Retreat: Young Adults “It Just Doesn’t Seem Fair”: Reflections on the Workers in the Vineyard


Reflecting on the laborers hired to work in the vineyard who all get the same pay regardless of the number of hours they worked, we will forage into the areas of competition, fairness, vulnerability, the effect of comparisons and the right to be generous.  Come join the discussion and open your heart to the vulnerability that helps us understand that it’s okay even when life isn’t fair.

Date, Time and Cost:

This retreat begins at 7:00 and ends at 8:30 on Wednesday, March 21, 2018.  There is no cost for this program.
