Women's Retreat is Saturday, February 6, 2016

Our Women’s Retreat is Saturday, February 6th and we’ll focus on blessings. A blessing is a request for God to enter a situation or fall upon a thing and for God's power to be with it, right there.  If anyone knows about blessing homes, it's us, who scrub pots and kiss babies and plant bulbs and know the comfort of easing into just the right chair with a book or your knitting or the remote for just the right show.  

On February 6th, we'll gather together and talk about blessing; we'll talk about calling God right down to be present here in the ordinary and the extraordinary.  Then we'll write some blessings (or draw them or sing them or quietly pray them). I hope you can make it!
