Many of us have forgotten how to experience the sweetness of God. The sweet nectar of his work that keeps us going when life crumbles around us. The sweetness of God is the energy that empowers us to endure hardships. By experiencing sweetness through chocolate we will be made aware of:

  • Knowing God is knowing his sweetness
  • Being loved by God means being enveloped by his sweetness
  • Living in the Spirit is about enjoying the sweetness of God.

Friday evening will begin with a Taize prayer service in the chapel, followed by a social with wine and chocolate pairings.
