“Discovering an Oasis on Your Journey”
As women, we are often intimately connected with other people’s day to day lives, witnessing both joy and sudden pain and grief. Often, we find ourselves responding to God’s call to be in relationship with, and sometimes in ministry to, those around us. This can be fulfilling and we can be certain that we are in the center of God’s will. But, what happens when

…we are stretched to the point of breaking?
…we want to run and hide in a cave like Elijah?
…we don’t want one more person to need something from us?
This weekend we will talk honestly about what happens to us spiritually, emotionally, and physically when we bear witness to other people’s pain. Through education, experience, scripture, and self reflection, we will learn to listen to and respond to God’s call while maintaining our own sense of self. Caring for ourselves has a ripple effect on our family, our workplace, and our faith community. Come away and be refreshed, renewed, and encouraged toward a life of answering God’s call with grace and perseverance.
