Thirteen ladies from St. Thomas' Anglican Church in Sherwood Park took a break away from their usual routines last weekend. From Friday evening, September 13 to Sunday morning, September 15, they came together for a time of renewal, refreshment and fun at the Star of the North Retreat Centre in St. Albert. Facilitator Shelly King led as they dug into gospel stories, connecting with women who knew and loved Jesus; and they sat long over meals and snack times, connecting with each other. The weather was beautiful for those who wanted to get outside for walks; the setting comfortable for those who wanted to just sit and visit. The only question… when can we do it again!?
