Chattanooga House Of Prayer To Host Rhythm Retreat On Saturday

Tuesday, October 9, 2018
The Chattanooga House of Prayer is hosting their next Rhythms Retreat on Saturday from 9 a.m.-noon at Chattanooga House of Prayer, 3912 Dayton Blvd. in Red Bank. Chattanooga House of Prayer developed the Rhythms series to support those who were seeking to find balance and strengthen their spiritual journey.  
 
"The retreats have been held over the course of a year and include teaching, engaging discussions and practice of a particular spiritual discipline," officials said.  "During this year-long journey, participants have explored spiritual practices that have cultivated intimacy with Christ, nourished their soul and ultimately transformed their lives.
While two retreats remain for 2018, each retreat can stand-alone. October’s Rhythm session is entitled Sabbath - Establishing Rhythms of Work and Rest."
 
“If we do not allow for a rhythm of rest in our overly busy lives, illnesses become our Sabbath …. our pneumonia, our cancer, our heart attack, our accidents created Sabbath for us,” said Micki Ann Harris, ChattHop’s Spiritual Formation director. “Join us this Saturday to explore ways to create a rhythm of rest.”
 
The cost to register is $20. The retreat is open to the public and men and women of all ages are invited to attend. To register, or for more information, visit www.chatthop.org or contact Micki Ann Harris, ChattHOP’s Spiritual Formation Director, at mickiann@chatthop.org.
