Finding Peace of Soul

Peace of soul comes through a life of prayer, personal reform and renewal. Living in this way confronts modern culture with the tough-minded resilience of inner truth.

UNBOUND MINISTRY RELEASES THE POWER OF JESUS INTO WOUNDED HEARTS.
Unbound is a ministry of freedom and healing that helps us to release the Power of the Gospel into our lives.
Start out this Lenten season encountering the Father’s Blessing. We all have areas in our lives where we don’t experience freedom. These can be patterns of habitual sin, addictions, negative thoughts, resentments, and other forms of spiritual difficulty. Jesus came to set us free by breaking the power of sin and revealing the love of God. At the Unbound: Freedom in Christ Retreat you will learn how to unlock your prison doors by using the Five Keys To Freedom. The conference involves times of prayer, insightful teaching, and personal ministry from the Wichita Unbound ministry team. This conference will equip you to cooperate with God as He sets you free.

We will explore his writings, how he spent his life caring for his poor Muslim neighbors in the Sahara Desert with an incessant desire to be for each person a “universal brother”, a living image of the love of Jesus, and his rule for living the “life of Nazareth” which he believed could be led by all.
Pope Saint John Paul II’s – Love and Responsibility
Friday, June 10th at 5:30pm – Sunday, June 12nd at 4:30pm
In commemoration of the end of the Year of the Family, this retreat is offered to help strengthen faith and live God’s joy more fruitfully in family life. The Church’s teaching views marriage as an interpersonal relationship with the well-being and self-realization of each partner being of the greatest importance. We will look at St. John Paul II’s defense of Catholic tradition in the teachings about family life and sexual morality through his book, “Love and Responsibility”.
Responding to Relativism
Friday, July 8th at 5:30pm – Sunday, July 10th at 4:30pm
For many people, personal preference has replaced morality as a guide in how to live. We will look at the Church’s moral teaching as our guide to a happy and fulfilling life and discover why being led by personal preference takes us away from God’s plan for us. Using Edward Sri’s book, “Who am I to Judge: Responding to Relativism with Logic and Love”, we will learn how Catholic morality is all about love, how making a judgment is not judging a person’s soul, and how, in the words of Pope Francis, relativism wounds people and is the spiritual poverty of our times.

Encountering One’s Deepest Center
Friday, September 9th at 5:30pm – Sunday, September 11th at 4:30pm
The goal of contemplation is an encounter with God in our depths. Join us as we delve into the teachings of the Cloud of Unknowing which takes us to that center and Abandonment to Divine Providence by Jean-Pierre de Caussade which shows us how to surrender to God by trusting Him from our core.
Friday, October 14th at 5:30pm – Sunday, October 16th at 4:30pm
What are the foundational beliefs that take us into the heart of what it means to be a Christian? Journey with us as we enter into the thought of C.S. Lewis as he explains and defends the most basic beliefs of Christians, hoping to persuade others to come to our Lord. Come immerse yourself in the unequaled opportunity for believers and non-believers alike to hear this powerful apologetic for the Christian faith.
