Retreat called to listen

"A voice came from the cloud, saying, “This is my Son, whom I have chosen; listen to him.” (Luke 9:35)

The time is drawing closer for us to step away from the noise of life in the beautiful state of Arkansas and join together as a group of women, Called to Listen. Iron Rose Sister Ministries (IRSM) will provide multiple opportunities to listen at its second Destination Retreat, September 15-17, 2017.

Our Heavenly Father has a message that we have each been called to hear, but are you listening? In the midst of a noisy world, listening has become a lost art. We know that “anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand” (NLT). But how should we listen? What is God saying?

We may never experience God’s voice through a burning bush like Moses, but we can hear His voice through His Word, through nature, through Christian brothers and sisters, even through silence… But again, the question we must ask ourselves is, “Are we listening?”

The IRSM Destination Retreat will also serve as the kick-off for Called to Listen: 40 Days of Devotion.

Why is the cost $100? Delightful details about what your regstration cost includes!
