Taste and See: A Spiritual Retreat for Cincinnati Women


There are still some spots open for the women's retreat I'm leading on spiritual practice on March 9 and 10. We'll be drawing from Marjorie Thompson's excellent book Soul Feast (which you do not have to read beforehand) and trying our hands at a few spiritual disciplines. We'll also be relaxing and enjoying the peace and tranquility of the Transfiguration Spirituality Center just north of Cincinnati.

Most of the women will be Episcopalian, but if you had to be Episcopalian to attend, why then they wouldn't have invited me to lead it, now would they?  ;-) So don't let that be an obstacle.

Here is a brief description, and a link to registration.

Looking to broaden your understanding of the spiritual life? Join us on March 9 & 10 for the WOMEN'S RETREAT "Taste and See: A Feast of Spiritual Practices." In this retreat, Jana Riess, PhD - member of Redeemer's Adult Formation Ministry Team and author of Flunking Sainthood - will lead us in a "tasting menu" of several spiritual practices, including lectio divina, fixed-hour prayer, and Sabbath-keeping. Whether you are a regular practitioner of these disciplines or it's your first time, we'll explore together how such practices can help us grow closer to God. (Marjorie Thompson's book Soul Feast will be a resource.) The retreat will be held in the BethAnna house at the Transfiguration Spirituality Center. You may register on the Redeemer website or by phoning the church office (513-321-6700). Please make sure that your registration is received by the deadline date - February 28. The cost is $70 and includes private room, three meals, and program.
