Retreat for Chaplains and Spiritual Carers

About the Event

Chaplains and spiritual carers encounter unique opportunities and challenges for participating in God’s shalom in their workplace. These can be equally sustaining and draining.

As another testing year draws to a close, this one-day retreat offers a curated space for chaplains and spiritual carers to:
  • gently and quietly encounter shalom for themselves
  • rest in its graces
  • ponder its presence within the marvel and mess of life and ministry

Theme: Graces of Shalom

The powerful Hebrew motif of Shalom, often translated as ‘peace’, conveys much more than the absence of conflict. Shalom is an icon into God’s flourishing and fullness in Christ for the cosmos, communities and individuals. It is embodied in graces such as reconciliation and relationships, justice and righteousness, beauty and creativity, and paschal wholeness.

“Shalom is the breadth, depth, climate, and smell of the Kingdom of God,” says Osheta Moore. It is “the culture of the Kingdom of God.”
