Upcoming Weekends - Fall 2018
Location: San Francisco Theological Seminary, Baird Hall, San Anselmo, CA
Women's Fall Weekend
Date: Nov.8 - Nov.11, 2018
The Theme: God is Love
Rectora: Charlynn Baumsteiger
(1 John 4:8) I love that Marin Cursillo is Ecumenical! It is one of the main reasons that I remain involved and active. I was raised in the Lutheran, Methodist & Presbyterian traditions and they are very much a part of who I am. I have been a practicing Catholic for many years, but my Protestant roots are ever present in my life. Having friends from varying Faith traditions further opens our minds and allows us to know and understand our God and each other in new ways.
It is all based on LOVE. We are all loved... we are forgiven... we are treasured by our God.
Whenever possible I try to return to the Gospel message of Love & Forgiveness. Isn't that what the Gospel is all about? Most often, I feel God's presence in moments of JOY. Through Laughter and sharing God feels real…and JOY is present at a Cursillo weekend!
This is an unusual retreat opportunity... Is it even a Retreat? That is debatable but lacking a better word, it is sometimes defined that way. Cursillo is a Weekend Experience that can become a lifelong experience. It is a GIFT to you.
Those of us who are active in the Marin Cursillo Community frequently hear that "We are the hands of God on Earth." And God is Love.
Whoever you are, wherever you are in your faith journey you are welcome at Marin Cursillo.
You will be allowed to be yourself. YOU are a treasured creation of God... and we want to help you have a wonderful Faith-Filled weekend.
Men's Fall Weekend
Date: Nov.15 - Nov.18, 2018
The Theme: A Closer Walk
Rector: Tom Brawley
Shortly after accepting the invitation to be rector of the next Men’s Cursillo Weekend, my wife and I spent 8 days walking part of the pilgrimage Camino de Santiago to Santiago de Compostela. While walking, praying, singing, and feeling grateful, we felt closer to God. This experience gave life to the theme for our Cursillo…. A CLOSER WALK. Our theme song is the beautiful JUST A CLOSER WALK WITH THEE.
I believe that our Cursillo team and candidates will fully experience God’s presence on our weekend.
Working as a team, we will provide a safe place for our candidates to more fully recognize, develop, and express their own Christianity. I also believe that our team and candidates will form new and deeper friendships and experience fellowship rich with trust in God’s Love.
Christians of any faith, parish or congregation, are invited to experience the human expression of God’s Love. Come to Cursillo, enjoy the Love through A CLOSER WALK.
I encourage the Marin Cursillo community to invite their partners, children, other family members, friends, and church members to apply for this upcoming weekend.
