Northminster Presbyterian Women Annual Retreat
March 16-18, 2018
The Dillard House in Dillard, Georgia
“Lord, save me from gloomy saints.” -Teresa of Avila
A Sanctuary of Women
The days of middle March are an ideal time to step away, relax with friends, enjoy time around the table, and breathe deeply in a natural setting. Come away with us for the annual women’s retreat to The Dillard House in the beautiful mountains of northeast Georgia.
Our own Nancy Kinzer will lead us in an exploration of the writings of three ancient women mystics – feisty, spicy women who blended spiritual courage with down-to-earth humor and wisdom. They are Hildegarde of Bingen, Teresa of Avila, and Juliana of Norwich.
The idea for this theme came to Nancy from a book by Jan Richardson called In the Sanctuary of Women. As Jan Richardson invites so beautifully, this retreat will be “an invitation, a doorway, a threshold into reflection and contemplation, conversation, and prayer. It will offer a time to ponder where you find sanctuary in your life, or where you long for it; to reflect on where you meet the sacred and where you hunger for it. And perhaps you will find a few threads of connection and community that will sustain you on your way.
