This year’s Spiritual retreat on August 26 has the theme of Living Water: an appropriate topic for our event setting at beautiful Popham Beach.  From 9:00-2:00 we will have the opportunity to explore Biblical passages about wells and water to more fully develop the image of “living water” which Jesus uses throughout the Gospel of John.  We will also explore how this biblical image of living water can impact our understanding of  literal water issues locally and globablly.

The retreat will be held at Popham Chapel in Phippsburg, Maine. The schedule includes times for worship, discussion, and walks along Popham Beach to reflect upon the texts under discussion.  Luncheon will be provided from Percy’s Store in Popham.  Advance registration is requested.  Thanks to the generosity of the New England Synod of the ELCA, the cost for this event is only $5 per person.  To register online, email your name, address and telephone number to: gslc@myfairpoint.net.  You may register in person at Good Shepherd.   For more information, check out our August newsletter by following the link below.
