Women: Come Rest, Refresh, and Renew on April 13

“Women at the Wheel” is the theme for LTSP’s annual
Rest, Refreshment, and Renewal Women’s Day 2013

Learn more about the experience from participant Linda Moore:

"Rest, Refresh, and Renew are just the right words for this exciting caring, learning, social, and spiritual event. Each year is a great learning experience. With so many varied and interesting topics to choose from, it is difficult to choose which you would like to take part in.

"Last year,s event was just such an example. We all learned about the important and surprising women in the lives of Martin Luther and Henry Muhlenberg, what women wore back ion those times, and gardening in colonial America, not to mention much more about ourselves.

"There are opportunities if one wants to explore the seminary and grounds - that is an option that is also available. One can take a well earned time out from the irritating things life seems to always throw you way that perhaps would just like to get away from for a time.

"The lunch and snacks are really great, too!

"The event is also a great way to meet new people to help you on your spiritual journey in life, with devotions before and after the event!

- Linda J. Moore, St. Andrew's Evangelical Lutheran, Perkasie, PA

Rest, Refreshment and Renewal 2013

Registration including refreshments and lunch is $40 per person or $275 for a table of 8. 

Register now and join us for the seventh annual event on Saturday, April 13, 2013. This day will use the Wholeness Wheel as its basis, inviting women to renew, reconnect, and refresh physically, emotionally, and spiritually in a day of fellowship and gathering. Invite your friends, colleagues and fellow church women to share this day.

Martin Luther said:
“This life, therefore, is not godliness but the process of becoming godly, not health but getting well, not being but becoming, not rest but exercise. We are not now what we shall be, but we are on the way. The process is not yet finished, but it is actively going on. This is not the goal but it is the right road. At present, everything does not gleam and sparkle, but everything is being cleansed.”

You are warmly invited to an engaging day of rest, refreshment, and renewal for women. We will gather around the Wholeness Wheel with its wellspring of resources to help us tap into God’s will for our spiritual well-being. Through worship, workshops, and a wonderful community exchange market, we will draw on refreshing streams to enhance the Social/Interpersonal, Intellectual, Emotional, Physical, Vocational, and Financial aspects of our Spiritual Well-being. Learn more about the Wholeness Wheel.
