Encouragement for the Long Haul
A Swig of Water and a Wedge of Orange
In a marathon, the halfway mark is no time for grand assessments and atta-boys, but it is a good place to pause, taste a bit of fruit, swish some water and take stock of where we are, how we are, and maybe, to make some adjustments for the rest of the course.
A year into the coronavirus pandemic, lockdown fatigue, vaccine availability and the uncertainty of what lies ahead tells us we have come a long way indeed, but there is still a long way to go. Time to take a beat. Our pandemic experience is a shared struggle, but day-by-day, we are largely on our own as we learn, change and find new growing edges. Eremos’ first Men’s Retreat is an opportunity to bring into community some of the experience that has reshaped our lives and the lives of those we love.

During the retreat, we will reflect and share our own personal experiences, centering on written reflections, then expanded by leaders’ personal journeys, then opened up to broader discussion. The overnight break is to give us some time to sleep on it – potentially bringing depth and new focus to the discussions of night two.
Through the process we expect to share, support one another, and build community.
The Men’s Gathering is a monthly Eremos event on Zoom, where we seek to build a community of trust and openness in acknowledgment of the spiritual unity that binds us all. You need not attend the monthly meetings to take part in the retreat. In fact, it might be an opportunity to find a new kind of connection in this time of socially distanced fragmentation.
Hope to see you there!
