Grace Seattle Women’s Retreat 2013
The retreat weekend will include teaching, small group discussions, worship and down time to rest and hang out together. Join us for a weekend of exploring our faith and connecting with other Grace women!
Rest. Remember. Flourish. The Spirit In Us.
Speaker: Gwen St. John
The truth is that we, as followers of Christ, are never alone. The Holy Spirit of God dwells in us, giving us the possibility of true rest, causing us to remember what is true, and making us flourish with bountiful life. This is the reality of Jesus’ deeply kind promise to His disciples at the Last Supper, “I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper to be with you forever.” We will pay attention to this encouraging and abiding gift of God, and be mindful of the work the Spirit is creating in our lives.
