“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances. . .” 1 Thessalonians 5:16
Deeply rooted in scripture, we are called to always be thankful. The psalms are filled with words of thanksgiving. Using scripture and the book Grateful: The Transformative Power of Giving Thanks by Diana Butler Bass, we will spend time looking at our attitudes toward gratitude. We will learn what science shows about how being grateful affects our bodies and how to use a variety of gratitude practices to deepen our relationship with ourselves and with God. This retreat focuses on women’s experiences which we will examine through discussion, meditation, self-reflection, and sharing. There will also be time for private reflection included in the weekend.
This is a women’s retreat, guided by Paula Jilanis. Check-in begins at 4pm and the retreat will start after dinner.
