Episcopal Conference Center Oakhurst (ECCO)
In a world that values production many of us are often running on fumes, seeking and desiring rest, but what does that look like? How do we find the sacred rest our minds, bodies, souls require so we can better serve in the ways the Lord has called us too?
The Central Valley District United Methodist Women (part of our CA/NV Conference) are offering this spiritual retreat at the ECCO Conference Center in Oakhurst, just 12 miles from the south gate of Yosemite National Park.
During the retreat, June 5-7, 2020, you’ll explore 7 kinds of rest as outlined in “Sacred Rest” by Dr. Saundra Dalton-Smith, and develop practices that can help sustain the kinds of sacred rest one may not even know one craves.
For more information, please see the event flyer. Please register by May 10, 2020.
On Feb. 8, 10:00am, Cambrian Park United Methodist Women are presenting “A School to Prison Pipeline Conversation” with speaker Deb St. Julian.
Join us for a conversation about race, “white privilege” and education in America today. What we can do? How can we help?
Snacks and drinks will be served.
Everyone is invited!
