Deepen Your Love for God with this Retreat
The Greatest Commandment states that we are to love the Lord our God with all our heart, with all our soul, with all our mind, and with all our strength, and to love our neighbor as ourselves. In Lord, You Know I Love You, Jennifer Fitz offers a guided retreat designed for use by individuals or in a group setting. This is actually two retreats in one in that it has sets of questions for both personal and professional discernment and development.
Why should you do this retreat? “Because God loves you, and He wants you to experience the unspeakable joy that comes from living your life utterly, totally, completely given over to Him.” This retreat is designed to help you regroup and prepare for the next spiritual battle you need to engage in.
The “Four Spiritual Food Groups” are heart, soul, mind, and strength. Fitz explores what it means for us to love God with each of these dimensions of our personality. She asks probing questions that lead to deep reflection on the true state of our relationship with God and how we can deepen our love for him.
Her questions for professional discernment can lead to a more God-focused and mission-focused organization as well as a clearer picture of one’s role in that mission.
This retreat has the power to bear great fruit for both individuals and groups.
