Fall Women’s Retreat
The Hebrew word bara suggests the idea of shaping or creating. It names the way in which we are invited into partnership with God in the shaping of our own lives and those around us. During our retreat time this year Rev. Katie Baker will help us explore the biblical foundation of that invitation and some of the many ways that we embody that creative agency. We may not be poets or painters, singers or actors but there are, in fact, countless ways that we see, process, and then respond creatively to our world, to one another, and to our God. Come share your own experience and try out a new form! There will be a number of workshop opportunities to learn and practice creativity via cooking, mandala-making, choral reading, knitting/quilting, photography and yes—painting and writing! These will be led by members and friends of WPC. Registrations are available NOW in the Gathering Place, by calling the church office, or by downloading the form here.
