Join us for a Fall Women’s Retreat! We will come together both in person and online to explore the deeper meaning behind self-care. How can we better care for ourselves for the sake of a more healed, just, and resilient world? As Christian women we must model what it means to strengthen ourselves so we can serve with boldness and sustainability.
We will start with Friday Night Vespers, and you will choose to meet at a bonfire in person, or on Zoom. On Saturday we will meet in groups for walks or meditation online. There will be options for virtual roommates, pre-reading, care packages, and more! After our speaker, you may journal, do yoga, and end your day by mid-afternoon with online worship.
Our featured speaker, Rev. Ashley-Anne Masters, will join us via Zoom. Ashley-Anne is Director of Presbyterian Campus Ministry of Raleigh, a faith-based nonprofit serving college-aged students in the greater Raleigh, N.C., area. As of April 2020, she’s also serving as a hospital chaplain part-time during the pandemic. She holds degrees from Columbia Theological Seminary and Presbyterian College. Prior to campus ministry, she served as Interim Manager of Spiritual Care at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. Her clinical units were oncology, palliative care, and transport. She is co-author of Bless Her Heart: Life as a Young Clergywoman, author of Holding Hope: Grieving Pregnancy Loss During Advent, contributor to Talking Taboo: American Christian Women Get Frank About Faith, and blogs at revaam.org.
