The Rev. Jennifer Strickland from Claremont UCC will be the facilitator for the 2019 IUCC Women’s Retreat at Pilgrim Pines on May 3-5. The theme will be “Stories Untold: Women of the Bible.” Look for the registration table on the patio through April 14 or sign up online.
We will look at different women in the Bible, including obscure women, read their stories and ask questions: How are these women subverting the system? How might this text and woman’s story guide us today?
Rev. Jen will incorporate a personal reflection aspect to the retreat during which she will lead participants in journaling, making art, writing prayers, and sharing their own personal stories of triumph, heartache, challenges, and future hopes.
The goal will be to use the narratives of the women found in Scripture as a framework for us to tell our own stories with honesty and openness.
Look for the Women’s Fellowship table on the patio on March 31, April 7 and April 14 to register.
