Finding God in the Questions

This year’s women’s retreat will be held at Chapel Rock in Prescott, May 7-9. The theme will be Finding God in the Questions. In this fast-paced, technologically advanced world of ours, we seem to have lost the ability to live into the questions.

What are your questions? How can you find God in the questions of your hearts? What are God’s questions? What can they teach us about ourselves?

Reserve the dates on your calendars and join us on retreat as we work together to live in, wrestle with, and raise questions; as together we seek God in the questions.

Our featured speaker will be the Rev. Dr. Judy Siker. Each day will include presentations by and dialogue with Dr. Judy Siker, small group community, corporate and individual times of silence and contemplation, and communing with God through movement, art and nature.

Designed to stimulate spiritual and personal growth and to strengthen connections with one another, our church and our Lord Jesus Christ, this retreat will offer opportunities for fellowship, renewal, reflection, Bible Study, workshops, games, creativity and worship.

You will be hearing much more about plans for the retreat in the weeks ahead.

Dr. Siker was visiting professor of New Testament and Christian Origins at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. Previously she was the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, California, serving as Vice President and Professor of New Testament at San Francisco Theological Seminary and Dean and Associate Professor of New Testament at the American Baptist Seminary of the West in Berkeley, CA. She has also taught at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; Meredith College, in Raleigh, NC; and the Loyola Chicago Rome Center, Rome, Italy. Her teaching includes classes in the field of New Testament and Christian Origins and in biblical languages. Some of her current research interests are in the areas of the history of interpretation of the Gospel of Matthew and rethinking women’s stories in the New Testament.

She was our guest speaker a few years ago for our Summer Bible series and we are very happy that she will be joining us in Prescott for this year’s Women’s Retreat.

Blessings and peace,

Linda Bailey, Associate Pastor
