Registration is Open for the 2019 BYM Women’s Retreat! Register by December 21 for the best price. Go to: www.bym-rsf.org/events/ymevents/women19.html. This year’s theme: Women’s Treasure: Honoring our Time and Talents. Together, let us explore the treasures within and among us. How do we become aware of our own gifts and talents? How do we choose to use and nourish them? Do we “prize our time”? How can we help each other grow in awareness of what we give, and what we receive, as we live in spiritual community? Special Performance by Playback Theater! We look forward to welcoming back Playback Theater to give an improvised performance exploring our theme. The actors will work with stories from our community, and rich and unexpected insights may emerge as we all participate. Plus: Worship, chanting, workshops, crafts, worship sharing, catching up, eating, and napping! Learn More! You can find information about the retreat on our growing website: http://womensretreat.bym-rsf.net/. Volunteering and Participating: This year’s retreat is being planned by a committee of volunteers from various Meetings. We can still use volunteers during the retreat. If you are interested in helping us, please write: organizer@womansretreat.bym-rsf.net. Please consider offering a workshop. There are so many wonderful possibilities! There are forms on the website to let us know of your interest. We also welcome crafters – and again, the website has a form.
