The Journey begins with the welcoming dinner followed by three days of excursions through the beautiful Italian countryside, tasting its delectable olive oil and wine, along with other local delicacies. The Journey also includes a half day of silence and conversations on various topics for embracing more holistic Christianity…

Journey into the World of Wine

Enjoy vineyard and wine tasting and explore together the question “Wine for Christian Spirituality? —  Restoring Wine to its Proper Place in Christian Spirituality”  

Journey into the World of Olive Oil

Enjoy a tour of an olive grove and explore the culture of olive oil, its health benefits, the concept of quality for olive oil, production and procurement processes, how to buy olive oil, and, lastly, the practice and methodology of olive oil tasting.

Journey into Food & Faith

  • Experience hands on Italian cooking
  • Explore food as a tangible symbol of God’s love and gift to humanity  and as an indespensable part of the Lord’ Supper, a meal Jesus instituted as the regular occasion to remember Him, celebrate the new life in Him, and to look forward to the fulfillment of His Kingdom.

Journey into Silence

Experience a journey into a half-day of silence — strolling through beautiful and rustic Italian country path and olive grove or reflecting and journaling sitting front of serene scenery. Journey into silence will be followed by an evening of conversation sharing our experiences over a glass of wine and nibbles…

“Solitude well practiced will break the power of busyness, haste, isolation, and loneliness. You will see that the world is not on your shoulders after all. Your will find yourself, and God will find you in new ways. Silence also brings Sabbath to you. It completes solitude, for without it you cannot be alone. Far from being a mere absence, silence allows the reality of God to stand in the midst of your life. God does not ordinarily compete for our attention. In silence we come to attend. Lastly, fasting is done that we many consciously experience the direct sustenance of God to our body and our whole person” (Dallas Willard)
