Women Ministries of the GLC Fall Retreat

Linger – Women Ministries of the GLC Retreat

Sharon Garlough Brown

Sharon Garlough Brown

To those who are hurried, burdened, driven and weary, Jesus offers a different rhythm, a rhythm of grace and rest, slowness and renewal. But how do we embrace that invitation when so many demands and concerns press in upon us? Who has time to linger?

Sharon Garlough Brown, author of the Sensible Shoes series, will lead us in an exploration of practices that help us slow down and savor the presence of God, not just for a weekend, but in the midst of our daily lives. Come and discover a new rhythm of keeping company with Jesus.

Come and linger

 


Spring Celebration 2018

For many years Women Ministries has sponsored a Spring Celebration meeting where women came together to learn and worship. This format worked for our mothers and grandmothers. It does not work in today’s fast-paced environment.

We are geographically stretched over 8 states. It is not reasonable to expect someone from Kentucky to attend a one day seminar in western New York, or Michigan, or even Ohio. We get that. We know the day needs to be filled with purposeful activities – we value your time.

So we have chosen this year to take a hiatus, survey your needs and come back in 2019 with a new and improved format, We anticipate rotating locations between 4 different regions (Michigan, Western NY/Western PA, Ohio, and the southern tier – West VA, Western Virginia, KY and TN).

We are establishing a multi-cultural, multi-regional planning team. If God is tugging on your heart to get involved, please contact me. We encourage you to give us your thoughts and ideas. Please contact me, Phyllis Van at phyllisavan@gmail.com We will be sending out a survey in the near future.

So we are almost done with our first week of mandatory shelter-in-place and end of our second week of voluntary shelter-in-place. Kinda starting to understand why pets try to run out of the house when the front door opens.

I keep hearing all sorts of good things that are going on. Keep it up!

One neighborhood banded together and brought 'Elsa' to visit houses that had smaller children. She stayed outside and sang and danced for the kids. The kids were so thrilled that 'Elsa' came to see them!

We all need something to look forward to in these dark days. These days will not last. We will come out of it.
