An Urban Retreat Center
Center for Contemplation and Calling:
Learning to live in God
for the sake of the world.
The most compelling lives are often ones lived with deliberate thoughtfulness. Yet most of us today move at such break-neck pace, we rarely stop to consider how we’re doing, the trajectory of our lives or our deeper longings.To live wisely and fruitfully, we must live contemplatively from the center of who God created us to be. That requires a conducive space where we can be still, pray, listen, process with others and receive spiritual guidance—the vision of Sustainable Faith Indy (SFI).
SFI addresses some of the most pressing needs of our culture today: the need for a place to come away and be still, to find our bearings, to hear from God and to engage with others in significant conversation and learning. SFI provides hallowed space for personal retreats, spiritual direction, learning cohorts and educational events that empower people to live in Christ from their truest selves--and to live out their calling in the world. We are a partner organization with Sustainable Faith in Cincinnati. For more information, please contact us through our contact page.
Starting Something New is Beth's most recent book, which tells the story of Sustainable Faith Indy, as well as 14 other stories of people from around the country who have given birth to a God-given dream. Click this link for more information and to order:

Presence: Being present to God, ourselves and others and receiving the gift of presence is vital to a growing life.
Hospitality: Seeing Christ in others and offering them hospitality is one way we welcome Jesus into our midst.
Contemplative Living: The most compelling lives are often ones lived with deliberate thoughtfulness. We believe that living contemplatively is essential in order to live a fruitful life.
Spiritual Practices: When meaningful spiritual practices become a framework for our lives, they enable us to live in relationship with Christ from our truest selves and empower us to live genuine and fruitful lives of love for God and others.
Calling: A contemplative life is not a cloistered life; it enables us to fulfill the purpose for which we were created. Each of us is called to do good work—work that connects to the Great Work of God in the world.
