Midweek Silent Preached Retreat for Women

November 14 - 16, 2023

Theme:  "Aging with Wisdom and Grace"

(no matter what age you are)

 

Everything changes and so too do we as our earthly journey progresses into its next age. We know that our physical bodies have an expiration date, but what of our spiritual selves? While one diminishes, the other increases. We are growing more and more into our true selves, the selves God created us to be. What are the challenges and the blessings of living into this transformation?

 

On this retreat we will examine some of the adjustments, the limitations, the losses, the solitude, the possibilities, the freedom, and the mystery of growing older gracefully at any point in the adult life cycle. Emily Dickinson said: “We turn not older with years, but newer every day.”

 

Each period of life has its own purpose. Through the everyday circumstances of our lives, God is calling us nearer and nearer to God’s own divine life. How do we navigate this process with wisdom and grace? E.M. Forster wrote, “We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.”
