Thanksgiving Amidst Struggle – November 14, 10:00 am–noon
A soulful exploration of thanksgiving during challenging times led by Minnesota musician Hans Peterson. Every November people in the United States collectively pause for thanksgiving. How does one remain grateful amidst struggles or loss of any kind whether it be related to a relationship, a job, racial injustice, one’s health, or the health of the planet? In this retreat for people of all ages we will tap into the experiences of the group to explore gratitude using story, music, a game, and conversation.
A professional musician for 25 years, Hans lives near Jordan, MN, where he is an intern pastor. He is grateful to be a spouse to Heidi and dad to two boys, Nelson (21) and Simon (16). He enjoys are eating Ben and Jerry’s ice cream, playing ultimate frisbee, cooking with vegetables from his family’s huge garden, and hiking just about anywhere. Learn more about Hans.
