Everyone needs to be loved. Just as our body needs food, water, rest and exercise to be healthy, and never matures out of those needs, so our spirit/soul needs to be loved in order to be healthy (i.e., secure, at peace, joyful) and it never matures out of that need. God knows that and wants our souls to “Taste and see that He is good” (1Pt. 2:3) and to experience his love that is “better than life” so that our “souls are satisfied as with the richest of foods” (Ps. 63:3, 5). Moses prayed that God would: “Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days” (Ps. 90:14).
THE “FIRST LOVED TO LOVE” SEMINAR
Our First Loved to Love Seminar begins on a Friday evening from 6:30-10:00pm and continues the next day (Saturday) from 8:30am-5:30pm for a day and a half of experiencing God’s love, primarily focusing on hearing and being receptive to His love for us AND HOW HE LOVES US through personalized scripture. You’ll experience this through worship, teaching, alone time, and small group time. This seminar provides an overview of the practices we encourage.
There are opportunities to go deeper during a retreat weekend. These retreats are more immersive in three primary practices (Love Verses, The Measuring Stick, and God Sightings), provide deeper interaction with trained facilitators, and offer a more relaxed environment to linger in the Lord’s Presence and Love. Our hope is that a retreat experience will help you internalize these transformative practices and nurture your quiet time at home and with others.
