Practicing Resurrection: Call of the Shore
April 21-24 - Naples Beach Hotel and Golf Resort, Naples, Fla.
Come the week after Easter to kneel, to walk and to pray along the shoreline of the Gulf of Mexico in Naples, FL. Place your feet in the moist sand of the shore mindful of the resurrected Jesus preparing breakfast and asking, “Do you love me?” Take pause. Let the solitude, wind and power of the ocean waves call you forward into the community of the resurrection. Begin the great fifty days of Easter together with us.
This experience of rest and renewal begins Monday, April 21, at 3 p.m. and continues through lunch on Thursday, April 24. After sharing morning prayers, you will spend the day in the wonder of God’s good creation, enjoying life’s simpler pleasures of sitting on the beach, deep sea fishing, biking, a round of golf, sea shell hunting and some laid back Florida beach chair conversation. Each evening we will gather after dinner to relate how our re-creation has nourished our souls. For more information, click here or e-mail Harry Rowland.
Sponsored by the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship and joined by CBF Florida.
