2012 Retreat

With another year of fantastic weather, we give thanks for the abundance of beauty – inside and out.

Speaker Rev. Suzanne Stoner checking in with one of Time for J.O.Y.'s founding mothers Shellie Bailey.

Friday night reception allows the women time to get to know one another; women come from all over the state.

It doesn't take long to find a group willing to bond over some games. These ladies are usually among the night owls . . . or are just enjoying a break from their normal routines.

Beautiful weather allows for time to enjoy breakfast outdoors. One of the most frequent comments about the retreat: "The food was wonderful." The company probably has something to do with it.

The beautiful mountainside provides the perfect spot to sit and reflect, particularly if there's another willing to listen to your wisdom.

Hands from the women of 2011 and 2012 grace the altar cloth.

 

Sunday morning Eucharist. Always a highlight of the retreat.

(Nearly) everyone from the 2012 retreat.
