He’s got this, ladies!
God’s got this! That’s one of the many things I took away from my first women’s retreat (back when it was called Christ Renews His Parish). I realized, while listening to my fellow parishioners who were leading the retreat, that I was my own worst enemy. I was the one blocking God out of my life. It wasn’t intentional at all, I just didn’t know any better. I decided that weekend to start letting go of my baggage and letting God lead me. (LG)2. Let Go and Let God. I loved that weekend!
That was the beginning of a wonderful journey that has led me to today. I started out on my own, looking for some way to connect with other women in my parish, some way to find support on my faith journey. At the time, I was married with a young son and working full-time, but I was pretty empty. Quite a few years have now passed and I’ve since attended a second weekend and this coming retreat will be my second time on the retreat giving team. What a blessing it has been working with the other ladies on this current team! They are truly my sisters in faith!
I need more sisters, though. Will you be one? Will you let me care for you on October 24 and 25? Will you let me shelter you for a while from the storm all around us? Please come and rest awhile.
We have a limited number of attendees we can safely have, so call the parish office (573-365-2241) and let them know you want to experience Welcome.
May God bless you! —Linda Adams
