A Lenten Morning Retreat: “For She is a Reflection of Eternal Light: Women and Wisdom”

February 28 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

For she is a reflection of eternal light, a spotless mirror of the working of God, and an image of his goodness. Wisdom 7:26

Join us for a special Lenten mini-retreat entitled: “For She is a Reflection of Eternal Light: Women and Wisdom in The Saint John’s Bible.” Led by special guest Tim Ternes, Director of Programming with The Saint John’s Bible, we will travel through the Wisdom books and reflect upon women in the Bible. Through video, reproductions and rich visual images, participants will explore women and wisdom passages and illuminations in The Saint John’s Bible via guided imagery discussions. This deep dive will help us recognize those women who embody God’s spirit and love for humanity.

Meet us in the Choir Room at 9am then if your schedule permits, stay for the 12:10 Healing Service in the Chapel and for lunch and fellowship in Alfriend Hall. There is no cost to attend and all are welcome!

To make sure we have enough room for all, please RSVP here.
