In the book of James, the author asks for us to con­sid­er life’s tri­als pure joy.” But what does that look like, and how is that pos­si­ble? Authors and teach­ers Juani­ta Ras­mus and Chris Hall have expe­ri­enced the joy of king­dom liv­ing through var­ied and some­times painful life expe­ri­ences. Dur­ing this week­end retreat, they will use teach­ing, sto­ry­telling, and inter­ac­tive con­ver­sa­tion to help uncov­er the invi­ta­tions to joy hid­ing in even the hard­est places. The cost of the event is $50, which includes Fri­day night din­ner, Sat­ur­day break­fast, and lunch.
