As women, we long for fruitful and meaningful relationships with family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors but can easily feel depleted by the demands and to dos. At our weekend-long women’s retreat, February 1-3, the Rev. Elizabeth Michael Ross will lead us in a time of digging more deeply into the relationships in our lives.

Using material authored by the Rev. Sam Wells, we will explore four primary ways we relate to others:  doing for, doing with, being for, and being with.  Then together we will practice the most important and often overlooked way: simply to "be with," imitating the God who is always with us.  We will spend time together engaging and reflecting upon this topic in addition to a weekend full of fun, fellowship, food and relaxation “being with” one another.  Come join us for this wonderful weekend away!
