Jewish Muslim Christian Association Retreat 2021

Jewish Muslim Christian Association Retreat 2021The JCMA will conduct its annual retreat at St Paul’s Missionary College, Wantirna, from Sunday 25 July to Monday 26 July, 2021. The theme of the retreat is Hope in the Midst of Life. The retreat will be available as a residential event and on Zoom.

As people of faith, we are learning to live with uncertainty in all areas of our lives. This conference invites Jews, Christians, and Muslims to think about the various ways in which our faiths understand hope. Together we will explore hope through our stories, scriptures, and teachings, and through people who have inspired us. How can we and our communities maintain the strong foundations that sustain and give us ‘Hope In The Midst Of Life’? Our keynote speaker, Cathy Connelly, is author of ‘Handbook Of Hope, Emerging Stories Beyond a Disintegrating World’.

Please note: The conference is for those who identify as Jewish, Christian, or Muslim. This will be a great opportunity to share meals over a two- day period and share in the three faith’s sacred prayer times.
