Days/Times: Friday, October 6 at 4 PM through Sunday, October 8 at 11 AM

Cost: $110/person.

Description: All women of St. Andrew and their gal friends are invited to attend the annual women’s retreat at Spirit in the Pines entitled “We are God’s Work’s of Art”. Here is the brochure.

The retreat leader this year is Ruth Bachman. She is a mountain climber, award-winning
author, educator, survivor advocate, inspiring presenter and woman of faith. Ruth contributes her time, her resources, and her talents, bringing a timeless message to diverse audiences, about the constant in life—change. Ruth will lead us as we explore how change is an external growth process and transition is an internal one; reflect on transition as an ongoing part of our spiritual journey toward becoming the work of art we are created to be; and learn that each woman’s journey is a unique gift to God.
