“If a man is ever to find out who he is and what he is here for, he has got to take that journey for himself. He has got to get his heart back.”John Eldredge, Wild at Heart
A Warrior Heart Weekend is a 3 day quest into the recovery of your masculine soul as outlined in John Eldredge’s book, “Wild at Heart.” Think back to your boyhood. Remember the boyhood dreams that had you tracking dangerous villains, swinging swords, rescuing those in distress, or storming the castle?
Adventure is what God planned for you. We invite you into an adventure, an epic adventure! We know, it’s hard to believe that an epic adventure awaits you. Besides, who are you? You’re just a common man in a modern day world of work, family, responsibilities. Come learn about the epic adventure that you’ve already been living in!
From John Eldredge’s book “Epic“
“The Story God is telling — like every great story that echoes it — reminds us of three eternal truths it would be good to keep in mind as we take the next step out the door.”
“First, things are not what they seem. Where would we be if Eve had recognized the serpent for who he really was? And that carpenter from Nazareth — he’s not what he appears to be, either. There is far more going on around us than meets the eye. We live in a world with two halves, one part that we can see and another part that we cannot. We must live as though the unseen world (the rest of reality) is weightier and more real and more dangerous than the part of reality we can see.”
“Second, we are at war.” Our life on earth is a love story, set in the midst of a life and death battle. Just look around you. Look at all the casualties strewn across the field. The lost souls, the broken hearts, the captives. We must take this battle seriously.
“Third, you have a crucial role to play. That is the third eternal truth spoken by every great story, and it happens to be the one we most desperately need if we are to understand our days. Frodo underestimated who he was. As did Neo. As did Wallace. As did Peter, James and John. It is a dangerous thing to underestimate your role in the Story. You will lose heart and you will miss your cues.”
“This is our most desperate hour. You are needed.“
Begin Your Adventure
This adventure begins on a Thursday morning and concludes on a Saturday night.
Through teaching sessions, films, and guided periods of reflection, we have designed something far more than a retreat — it’s an expedition of the heart.
You will never be the same again!
