Save the Date for the 2018 Women’s Retreat

“The Cultivated Life”

October 19-21, 2018

I am eagerly anticipating our Women’s retreat, our third annual retreat at Mission Springs in Scotts Valley. Each retreat that I have shared with our women has added a new layer of treasured connection for me and many attendees have told me they share my experience.

I am so glad to introduce our speaker, Dr. Susan Phillips. Susan has been a friend and a source of inspiration to me for 15 years, since she taught my first seminary class. The best way I can describe Susan is that she is the kind of person that helps you observe and appreciate God’s beauty in a deeply prophetic and imaginative way that keeps the focus on God, not on her intelligence and gifts. Time with Susan has always filled me with peace, which is why I happily served as her teaching assistant over several years.

Susan is a busy women with a generous spirit for teaching and spiritual direction. She is the executive director of New College Berkeley, a spiritual director, a sociologist, a seminary adjunct professor and an author.  From this perspective of a full and rich life,  Susan will guide us into a more imaginative way of understanding how to cultivate our lives in the midst of hurry and demands.

The Women’s retreat is one of the best ways to connect more deeply at PCLG. We are very focused on helping everyone feel welcome and known. We purposely gather in a place that is away from home, but not too far, so that any women who can only come for the day on Saturday can join us.

Registration will open in Fall 2018, but if you have questions or want to participate in planning, contact Pastor Erica.

Grace & peace,

Pastor Erica erica.rader@pclg.org
