Creation Care Retreat: What about Justice? • REVISED DATE: October 28-30, 2016


Lutherhill and the synod Lutherans Restoring Creation Team invite you to a weekend of Reformation renewal in the beauty of God’s good creation at the Zion Retreat Center in Galveston, TX. The subject of this retreat is environmental justice, and we will explore Biblical justice, consider how it applies to the world around us and reflect on how we can do justice. The retreat offers opportunities to study and learn, brainstorm and worship, discuss and reflect, and contemplate and recreate. Most activities on Saturday will take place in Galveston Island State Park, weather permitting. At the park, participants can explore the bay and the beach, walk under the stars at night, see wildlife in the early morning, or simply be at peace in nature. A hands-on outdoor service project in the park will be offered. Let’s rejoice together in God’s good creation! Due to Lutherhill’s generosity, this event is offered at a reduced cost. Space is limited, however, so register early at: www.zionretreat.org. The retreat is open to adults of all ages, and to youth 10+, when accompanied by an adult. Those with an unbreakable commitment on Sunday should feel free to register and attend only Friday – Saturday.

Cost: $75.00 per person
