About 80 women from Palmer recently retreated to Camp Allen for a weekend led by The Very Rev. Cynthia Kittredge, New Testament scholar, poet, and Dean of Episcopal Seminary of the Southwest. Her topic, ‘Walking the Road in the Gospel of Mark’, captivated us as we explored familiar stories and characters from new angles. Who knew there were so many courageous women in this Gospel? And how much fun it was to be encouraged to engage the Scripture with our whole selves: body, mind, soul and spirit! In addition to our scholarly pursuits, we enjoyed walking, talking, laughing and eating together throughout the weekend. This is a retreat that delivers what it promises: time to rest, build friendships, and strengthen faith. Save the date for next year’s retreat January 25-27, 2019!
