Restoration’s first ever Women’s Retreat is coming soon!
A post from Krista Obitts and Elizabeth Boesen, 2011 Women’s Retreat coordinators:
Then Jesus said, “Let’s go off by ourselves to a quiet place and rest awhile.” (Mk 6:31a, NLT)
Women’s retreats are often wonderful opportunities to learn more about God from gifted speakers. We are thankful for such occasions! Yet…the 2011 Restoration Women’s Retreat will be a bit different. We will seek to hear more from God Himself than from a speaker. To “come away” with Jesus, not to gather more information about Him. To enjoy His company — as well as that of friends old and new from our Restoration community.
During our time together, Elizabeth Fitch will help us to explore this invitation that Jesus issued to us to “come away” with Him. We’ll practice it during our restful, unstructured time together, and we’ll consider tangible ways in which we can continue to accept His invitation back in the busyness of day-to-day life. He is constantly offering us rest for our often weary souls; our part is to cultivate the habit of choosing, day by day and moment by moment, to accept His invitation to come away with Him. Our hope is that, having tasted this “rest of soul” together at the retreat, we will come home with an ever-deepening thirst for friendship with God and with His children.
