Women's Retreat 2017


The women of Emmanuel had a wonderful retreat in Wrightwood at Verdugo Pines Bible Camp. As always, the food was great and being up the mountain in the forest was good for the soul. Our speaker Karri Backer, who is now serving as interim priest at St John's Corona,  did a wonderful series of presentations on the Radical Compassion of Jesus. She taught some spiritual exercises to help us access Jesus' healing for our own wounds so we can then use that experience of compassion to be compassionate towards those in our lives that might be difficult to love. It was a profound and moving time. Special thanks to our own Kathie MacKenzie who celebrated Eucharist with the women on Sunday so that I could come back to Emmanuel and be with our community for Sunday services.

Poinsettia Sales
 
The sale of poinsettias is coming along nicely. We have about half of the plants we need to decorate the church. And a number of orders have been placed for personal use and for gifts. We will be taking orders this Sunday and again next Sunday.

Check Out Those Socks!

Because this might be my (Mo. Lyn's)  LAAAST Women's Retreat, I presented each woman at the retreat with a gift bag filled with goodies, which included a pair of sheep socks. Here are the women up at camp, "posing" with their socks on.
