Third Faculty Retreat, Authenticity and Grace: Corridors of the Heart
February 04, 2014
Directed by Dr. Justin Anderson
Authenticity is a near synonym of transparency. When one meets an authentic person, one meets the heart of the person. During this retreat we will seek to unlock not only personal authenticity as a corridor of the heart, but how it is that God’s grace also travels the corridors of our hearts. Thus, authenticity becomes not only a sign of the heart of the person, but also through her/him, a way we encounter the living God.
