13–17 March 2023 (Mon–Fri)

Jesus loved his friends Mary, Martha and Lazarus, and their home in Bethany was his second home. We’ll unpack the three gospel stories that explore their friendship with him, and how it changed them. As we do so we’ll explore action and contemplation, faith and doubt, despair and longing, resurrection and hope, sacrificial love and the meaning of home. Times for rest, silence and contemplation will be woven into the programme. We anticipate receiving refreshment as we deepen our friendship with God.
