Please join us for “RECEIVE”, a Spring Retreat on Saturday, April 20 from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. As you travel through life, do you ever get the feeling you are visiting a big box store to do some shopping? We start with a list at the door, but what we want is in the far corner. As we walk along, we see things that we "should pick up" and pretty soon our arms are full, but not of the things we need. Life is like that as well. We begin with intentions, goals, and expectations, but we fill up on "should pick up" stuff. When we do this, we cannot "Receive" what we need. This retreat focuses on emptying our arms, hearts, and minds of the stuff we picked up along the way to make room for what we really need. It is a time to renew body, mind and soul so that we may have our arms and hearts ready to receive what we really need. Please join us from 9:30-3:30 for walking and silent meditation, small group discussions, yoga and journaling, and an opportunity to connect with fellow journeyers on the road of life. People of all ages and religious beliefs are welcome. Vegetarian lunch will be provided. Optional yoga class offered from 8:00 to 9:15 a.m. Cost of the retreat is $10 per person, payable in cash or check on the day of the retreat. Net proceeds will be donated to Family Promise of Sussex County. Please register at www.waterloochurch.com (click on Spring Retreat).
