Seeing God Seeing Me

May 29-31, 2015

Women's retreat

During this weekend we will reflect on God’s love and our love for ourselves. We will use creative ways to map out our spiritual journey to seeing God and trusting what God sees in us. Then we will expand our field of vision from just me and God to how we look at others.

Quiet, writing, creating, walking, listening for God’s voice, trusting, hoping...all of these will shape our time reflecting on how we see God, ourselves and each other. Bring a journal and a pen and an open heart – all else will be provided.
