Cincinnati Pastors' Wives Soul Care Retreat
And He said to them, "Come away by yourselves to a secluded place and rest a while." (For there were many people coming and going, and they did not even have time to eat.) --
Has it been a great year of growth and encouragement? Or are you barely hanging on by a thread? Would you welcome some tools to keep your heart alive toward God? Are you hungry to draw near to Jesus and fill your soul? Do you need some rest? Would you enjoy a little fun? No matter where life finds you, all ministry wives are invited to join us for the 2019 Psalm One “Sisterhood of the Fishbowl” Soul Care Retreat February 8-10 in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Soul Care... Doesn’t that sound good? Get away with Jesus, and rest, and laugh, and learn, and be refreshed. Just for a few days, leave behind the busyness, and the pressures, the worries, the responsibilities, the concerns, the kids, the husband, the noise…
We have such a wonderful time on these retreats! We have our own cozy little cottage to ourselves. Reveling in God’s creation. Digging deep in His Word. Encouraging and strengthening one another. Peaceful walks through beautiful neighborhoods. Time to just be still and know that He is God.
Many of us take care of everything and everyone except ourselves. We might know how to run, crash, burn, and recover…but what about integrating the healthy holy rhythms of Jesus into a life of work, play, rest and prayer? We serve a God who loves us more than we can every fully comprehend. He wants His life to flow naturally out of a heart that is rested, restored and centered on Him.
The cost of this retreat is $150, which covers your housing, food, and materials. A few partial scholarships are available if finances are tight. Each woman has her own room, and we share bathrooms on the hall. Space is limited to 12 women, so register NOW. This is open to any woman whose husband is a full-time pastor, no matter which hats she wears: pastor, counselor, mother, attorney, accountant, nurse, teacher, or chief cook and bottle washer. So pass this to other pastors’ wives who might enjoy a weekend of fun, laughter, strengthening and encouragement! Let me know if there is anyone who’d like to be kept in the loop.
We may think we can't afford to take 48 hours away just to be renewed and refreshed and recharged. But in reality, we can’t afford not to! Life happens, and there will always be "emergencies" (according to someone's definition) ...places to go, things to do, and people to see. So if you're waiting for a completely free block of time in which there are no demands on your time, you'll wait forever. Decide to carve out this time for your own soul health. Choose to be encouraged and recharged after a long winter. We'll enjoy ourselves around the fireplace with some unwinding, sharing, input, prayer, lots of laughter and life-giving time with the Lord--all with the encouragement of others who truly understand life in the ministry.
