“Let’s Fly Like The Eagles!” Upcoming Online Retreats, Welcome.

October 4, 2021 Off By Janneke

“Do you not know? 

Have you not heard? 

The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth.

He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. 

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. 

Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 

but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. 

They will soar on wings like eagles; 

they will run and not grow weary, 

they will walk and not be faint. ” 

These are promises that we can read in the prophet Isaiah. The winter is upon us and in a few weeks’ time, the Advent Season will be around the corner. A beautiful moment to read the Old Wise Prophets. “Let’s fly like the eagles” will be the theme for our eighth online retreat.


“Online” and “Retreat” seem to be at opposite ends of the spectrum, yet, the first online retreats were so lovely, that we decided to continue.
