Budding trees, daffodils pushing up; it must be time for the First Church Women's Retreat, a time of renewal and growth we look forward to each spring.

If the date is not on your calendar already, here it is: Saturday, May 13, at Transfiguration Spirituality Center (TSC) in Glendale. For those of you who attended last year, our first year at TSC, you know that we have found a welcoming, comfortable, beautiful spot for our annual Women's Retreat. For those who are not familiar with this tranquil spot, here is a link to their website. http://ctretreats.org/index.php/accomodations.html

There are many ways to attend the Women's Retreat.

SATURDAY ONLY, MAY 13: A day of large and small group sessions, plus quiet alone time and three communal meals. Choose what you want from a menu of sessions, including such topics as writing, arts, dancing, Singing In The sacred Circle, and yoga. More sessions will be announced as we get closer.

ADD FRIDAY NIGHT, MAY 12: Arrive Friday, starting at 5:30 pm, for a laid back evening of conversation, board games, walking the grounds, sitting outside by the fire, and/or retreating to your room for some quiet time. Extreme noshing may occur.

SILENT RETREAT; Last year's Silent Retreat participants were enriched by the experience. Those choosing to include the Silent Retreat will arrive Thursday evening, May 11 for a shared dinner, then begin our 24 hours of silence, staying at St. Mary's Thursday night, and staying silent in community throughout the day Friday, until we break silence with a potluck dinner Friday night.
