Women's Retreat

Speaker: Kari Patterson (author, speaker, pastor, and Bible expositor)
"The Second Mile: The Disarming Power of Christian Love"

Get even. Fight back. Stand up for yourself. This is the response most often encouraged when we are treated unfairly or unkindly. But does it really work? Does freedom, does peace, does GOOD come through the careful calculation of wrongs? It seems as though everyone has an opinion on how to respond when wronged, but Jesus alone offers the good news that sets us free: Turn the cheek. Offer the coat. Go the second mile. 

More effective than any retaliatory scheme, Christian love disarms evil forces and truly overcomes evil ... with good. Come join us as we tackle this tricky subject--unfairness, unkindness, and everything else that just feels wrong. Jesus will gently teach us His ways, through His Word, as we gather and grow together as sisters in Christ. Can't wait to see you there!
