On at least three occasions when Paul was writing his letters to the early churches, he expressed his desire for the Lord to refresh their hearts. In Greek the work refresh carries the idea of rest and renewal. Jesus offers a beautiful invitation for those who are weary and burdened to find rest in Him.
Are you feeling weary, burdened and in need of rest? We would love to provide an opportunity for the women of Christ Community to once again have their hearts refreshed by the Lord. Because we believe we find our ultimate rest in Christ, we are setting aside a few hours for each of us to spend extended time with the Lord. April Crunk has offered to open her home for our “retreat.” Her home is surrounded by trees, and there are several decks and porches, so we can spread out and enjoy the quiet in a beautiful setting. Wear comfy clothes that help you relax; make up is optional too! Bring your Bible, journal, Eno, music etc… anything you need to tailor make your own personal retreat. We will provide an optional general outline with some prayers and readings you can follow if you would like a bit of structure to your time. However you choose to spend your time, our desire is to create an atmosphere for us to sit at the feet of Jesus and hear the words of life we need to refresh our hearts!
