Seasons of Change: A Retreat Guide on Spiritual Growth

Want to rate this?

Not sure how to use this retreat guide?

In the first centuries of Christianity, you had to be careful about publicly referring to people as Christians. So our ancestors in the Church came up with a code word to refer to those who shared the faith: they called each other “fellow pilgrims.”

It’s a good phrase, an accurate one. As Christians, we know that our life on earth is a purposeful journey guided by God’s providence. This journey takes us through many stages, many seasons of spiritual growth that the Lord uses to prepare us for our final destination: the Father’s house in heaven.

This Retreat Guide will show us how this pilgrimage truly works.

  • The First Meditation will explore the springtimes of our Christian journey.
  • The Second Meditation will explore its summers.
  •  And the Conference will examine its autumns and winters: Those times of painful transition sometimes referred to as the dark night of the soul.

The Personal Questionnaire/Group discussion questions are available in the Companion Guide Book or Small Group Companion Guide. Either download the PDF Companion Guide Book or purchase it. The Companion Guide Book is available for purchase from Amazon.

Pause the video at any moment to go to the Companion Guide Book or continue to the next meditation.
