Third Annual “Rest, Refreshment, and Renewal Day for Women”


“How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” Romans 10:15b

“How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of the messenger who announces peace, who brings good news, who announces salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.” Isaiah 52:7

Third Annual “Rest, Refreshment, and Renewal Day for Women”
Saturday, February 21, 2009, 9:00 – 3:45
The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia
$40.00 (lunch included) for information/registration

The theme of this year’s Rest, Refreshment and Renewal Day for Women is about your feet, your beautiful feet. God has called each of us to a specific daily vocation through which we bring the Good News. Whether that vocation includes family, neighbors, work, or community, our calling is to travel through our days bringing good news to those we serve and meet. Although this makes our feet beautiful, it also can make them tired, sore, callused, blistered, and in need of a day of rest. Set aside one day to relax! Come and put your feet up, soothe your soles, pamper your toes, and take time to reflect upon your beautiful feet!

Spend your time by participating in “Gatherings” such as prayer yoga, liturgical dance, singing, Bible study, exploration of prayer, relaxation for your feet, spiritual direction, service project and more. Take your own “Holy Time” to refresh and renew your spirit. Walk, rest, read, nap, bring your own craft project, explore the library, reflect upon the art in The Brossman Center, listen to music, bring a book, journal, meditate, have a meaningful conversation. Nurture your spirit! The campus is your sanctuary!

This gift of a day of rest, refreshment and renewal is offered to all women of your congregation and friends you may wish to invite. Give a gift to yourself and take a spiritual day to be renewed in mind, body and spirit. Remember to dress comfortably!

**New this Year! Special gathering offered for “Clergy Sisters”
