Reformation 500: 
Going Deeper into Faith not Fear
Metropolitan New York Synod Bishop's Retreat
Holy Family Passionist Retreat Center, West Hartford, CT | November 7-9, 2017
 
As we conclude our commemorations of the 500th Anniversary of the beginning of the Reformation, this retreat offers a good opportunity to go still deeper with a major theme of this momentous year: "Faith, not Fear." 
 
We live in such anxious times, when fear is exploited both by those who sell products and those who govern. How does the Reformation rallying cry, sola fide (faith alone) speak a gracious, healing, calming, and prophetic word to us and to our world today? 
 
During this retreat, Bible Studies will ground us, and we will hear the testimony of some of our own leaders, whose stories speak powerfully to the theme and reality of "faith, not fear." Worship will incorporate Luther's teachings in the Small Catechism, the interplay of which will shed light on both liturgy and the catechism. You can see the full schedule  by clicking HERE.
