Becoming Bread

October 28, 2022 @ 6:00 pm October 30, 2022 @ 1:00 pm

Facilitated by Candace Bahr / Bakers: Deanna Deising, Robin Elmer and Tanya Hielke

Transformation. Imagine for a moment the different ingredients that go into a loaf of bread… the different steps to make sure the bread turns out just right, including the kneading, waiting and going into the fire… the enticing aroma as it bakes and then finally sharing the bread with others around the table. Bread is nourishment around the world and God intends for us to be nourishment to each other. But first, we must allow ourselves to be nourished by God.

During our time together each participant will make their own loaf of bread! We will ponder the various ingredients and steps to make this bread and explore how they relate to our own lives – especially our faith journey in which we can become our true selves and be able to share ourselves and our gifts with our neighbor and the world around us; becoming bread for others.

Candace Bahr, a Resident Volunteer at St. Anthony’s, is a Certified Spiritual Director and Soul Companion with an extensive background and experience in leading retreats and living out her calling to help individuals to notice, savor and respond to the presence of Divinity/Spirit/Essence in their lives.

Deanna, Robin, and Tanya: In the winter of 2021 three women embarked on a quest to learn how to make and bake great sourdough bread. Having a love for good food and homemade cooking, the three women, two sisters and one daughter, attended a woman’s bread baking school in Fountain City. A day of kneading, learning, and absorbing the craft of bread making led to more reading, testing, and lots of baking! The trio will share their knowledge of sourdough artisan bread making as a way to give back and to spread the love of baking to others.

Registration begins at 3:00 pm on Friday, followed by orientation at 5:45 and supper at 6:00. The retreat concludes after the noon meal on Sunday.
