Presentation by Dr. Gail O’Day, Dean of the Wake Forest Divinity School:
800 Passages of Joy, led by Dr. Gail O’Day, Clark Room: Remember Pollyanna, the orphaned child of missionaries, played so well by Hayley Mills in the old movie? She corrects the stern minister of the town to which she has moved after her parents’ death by reminding him that there are 800 passages in the Bible that call us to be glad and rejoice. This workshop will look some of these 800 passages and help direct us toward joy as a core spiritual practice.
The Joy of Yoga, led by Jane Grant, certified Yoga instructor, Chapel - What could be more joyful than drawing your shoulders back while inhaling the morning’s first deep breath? You just did a yoga pose! You are invited in this workshop to experience more of this joyfulness through the practice of yoga. No experience is necessary and all levels are welcome. Please wear comfortable stretchy clothes.
Creating and Praying with Beads, led by the Rev. Deacon Peggy Buchanan and
Sandy Grant – Conference Room
Create! Celebrate! Pray! - Art as
spiritual practice – Led by Lisa Oberreuter – Undercroft In the beginning
God created....and God saw that it was good. Now whether or not God sang
creation into being or painted it or danced the great dance or wrote the
word, it is obvious we all have some special way of creating in sync with
God’s intention for our particular artistic passion. Let’s play (Godly play
for adult women who want to be children) for a while together and see how
Spirit is speaking through you to worship and praise our delightful Creator.
Bring your sense of humor and inner child; leave behind your fears and sense
of propriety and join me, Lisa Oberreuter, in a time of creative joy.
Our retreat day also includes lunch, worship, and many opportunities to get to know other women at Trinity Church.
Cost - $35, payable to Trinity Church, which includes lunch and all workshop materials. You may register and pay by mail or online. Please join us.
