District Staff Retreat is a time of renewal, rest, and refreshing where CPD licensed workers and spouses gather in Whistler, BC. Our time includes sessions together to worship, learn, laugh, share, and gather as a district family.
Divinity, Embodiment, & Culture
The Church is called the Body of Christ. ‘Embodiment’ is a core theological reality that includes the incarnation of Jesus, and every woman and man. We currently live in a time of change; there are sweeping cultural, political, and ideological shifts taking place in Western thought. What does it mean to be human, or, to be made in God’s image? What does it look like to think Christianly about matters such as identity, gender, and the sanctity of human life? Join us as we consider God, reflect on the incarnation, and discuss the implications for pastoring human beings in the 21st century.
Please note that if you are driving on the Sea to Sky Highway from West Vancouver to Whistler you are required to have winter tires. This means that your tires must display either a ‘snowflake in mountain’ symbol or at a minimum have the ‘M + S’ symbol and a tread depth of 3.5mm.
For more information, please see the BC Passenger Vehicle Tire & Chain Requirements.
