Weekend Retreat ~ more here:

Sanctuary: Creating Spaces to Rest, Renew & Live.
Rev. Terry Hershey
7:00pm Friday, November 22 to 1:30pm Sunday, November 24
This weekend retreat is an opportunity for sanctuary, care and presence in the moment.  Care of any kind—compassion, generosity, reconciliation, service, ministry, teaching, giving—begins with and is nourished by self-care. Or in the words of Charlie Parker, “If it ain’t in you it can’t come out of your horn.” Care begins with the power of pause. Care begins with the intentional choices we make about being present…passion, grace, play, laughter and wholeheartedness.
Cost: per person/shared $240; single $340; Commuter: $150
