Spiritual Yearning


We have a member of our parish who regularly reminds us, “How we are with others is how we are with God.” At Annunciation, we connect often and well with one another. Whether we’re swapping stories at coffee hour, grappling with muddy moral issues at adult forum, or raising up leaders for ordained ministry, conversation is central to our identity as a people of faith.
We are a community that yearns to be and to grow in our relationship with God — and the God in and among us. Last year, our women’s retreat filled up so quickly that we added extra space to accommodate the demand. Our parish retreat one year earlier brought out nearly 40 percent of our members for a weekend spiritual getaway in the backwoods of Wisconsin. And the annual Lenten program consistently feeds and deepens our hunger — for good food, engaging conversation, and spiritual community.
These events and others reflect our desire to grow as a spiritual people. Last year’s “Holy Conversations” revealed that most of our parishioners yearn for more opportunities for spiritual growth. We hope that, if you have this same desire for "something more," that you will come join us as we journey together.
