SAN JUAN BAUTISTA – Fr Jim Nisbet will lead a scripture retreat entitled Fill Us With Your Fire! at the Saint Francis Retreat Center, 549 Mission Vineyard Road, from 2pm on Friday, 12 August until 2pm on Sunday, 14 August 2022.
The weekend will be a mixture of scripture study, prayer, celebration, and community building. Fr Nisbet will be continuing the journey through the Book of Psalms, beginning with Psalm 76: “Ode to God, the awe-inspiring”.
Teaching scripture is Fr Jim Nisbet‘s favorite ministry. A priest of the Diocese of Monterey in California currently residing in San Luis Obispo, Fr Nisbet presents mystic study of scripture without theological vocabulary, giving factual information in simple terms, often with humor. Whether giving retreats in California, or abroad on four continents, Fr Nisbet brings biblical texts to life, using scripture as the foundation of all his presentations, days of prayers, international study and journeys, especially sharing insights from his 30 trips to the Holy Land and to the Middle East. Fr Nisbet studied at the University of San Diego, University of St Paul in Ottawa, and at the Graduate Theological Union (GTU) in Berkeley. Fr Nisbet has a rich variety of his talks on tape: Nisbet Scripture Study.
Registration for Fr Nisbet’s Fill Us With Your Fire! scripture retreat begins at 2pm on Friday, 12 August 2022, for those wishing to get into their room. The first event is supper in the dining room at 6pm. Click here to register.
