Think you DON’T need to go to
Women’s Ministries Retreat?
Alone is a very small world. We seem to have lost the art of friendship. Lost the art of conversation. Lost the art of hugging. Lost so many physical and mental ways of communicating with one another that if our phone was taken from us – well, you get the picture.
Come join us at this year’s Women’s Ministry Retreat where you don’t need a phone for prayer, don’t need a phone for praise, and you don’t need a phone to reach out and touch someone. The clichés of the world have all but destroyed our understanding of being “at one”. Our faith tells us to “press together”. “Where two or more are gathered …” “They came together …..” “God with us….” “O, Come All Ye Faithful”, but we have become islands, faces downcast and texting.
We need change … powerful change. Our hearts need to grow bigger so they can be inclusive, compassionate, understanding, and open to others. Our hands need to be open, helping, giving, hugging, holding. Our eyes need to be searching, understanding, finding, crying tears … of joy, compassion, longing …. for heaven, for home, for peace, for rest, for joy, for reuniting… and we cannot do these things alone.
We need to get together – to be “as one”.
A contradiction in terms, but it is an epidemic need throughout the world. Are we all going to march to Heaven as an army of one? The answer is “no”. We need to get together, praise together, pray together, laugh together, form lifelong bonds with other dear souls who are crying for someone to see them, hear them, and know them. Can we change this sad state of affairs?
The answer is “YES”. And you can start by coming to join us at
