WOMEN WHO KNEW JESUS

Led by Liz Lawhead

 

Jan 26, Feb 16, Mar 8, Mar 29, and Apr 19, 2020
All sessions meet on Sundays from 1:00 - 4:00 pm

$85 registration for five retreat days
Enrollment limited to 15 participants

 

Imagine Jesus looking at you lovingly and saying to you, “You know me.”

 

Are you attracted to explore this new horizon with some of the women who knew Jesus? Each woman who met him went away changed.


This retreat is based on Rev. Dr. Bonnie Ring’s book Women Who Knew Jesus

 

As you come to know each of the women based in Scripture you may be surprised to discover how your story is evoked by theirs. In each of these encounters, you will meet Jesus and come to know him in new ways. 

 

This retreat requires a commitment to read, meditate, ponder and journal weekly with the assigned chapter.

 

The Sunday afternoon retreats will be time to further reflect and share your experiences of getting to know Jesus and being known.
