The Homecoming

With Eamon Butler

11 December 2020

The Homecoming

Jesus’ parable of the Prodigal Son (Luke 15) is one of the most profound insights to the nature of God's compassionate and unconditional love for us.  On this retreat, we will explore the spiritual reflections of Henri Nouwen on Rembrandt’s painting of the homecoming scene of the Prodigal Son. These valuable spiritual insights can serve to increase our hunger and thirst for a deeper union with God on our interior journey of transformation. There will be talks, sharing, small group discussion, and times for reflection through silence, prayer & meditation.



Friday 11th December, 7.30pm – Sunday 13th December, 1pm

Option 1 – $350.00 per person (includes retreat, full catering and two night’s accommodation)

Option 2 – $225.00 (includes retreat and catering)
