The theme of this year's Women's Retreat is "Just a Closer Walk with Thee." Memories of this familiar
hymn remind us of its jazz versions made famous by various artists. It is often played at funerals in
New Orleans. Whatever this song might conjure up for you, we hope to use it as a gateway to our
inner walk with Jesus. The first verse begins with confession, praise, and a prayer:
I am weak, but Thou art strong
Jesus, keep me from all wrong;
I'll be satisfied as long
As I walk, let me walk close to Thee.
Mother Jean will lead our retreat as we explore various spiritual practices that can enhance our daily
walk with Him. We will be walking in the Holiness of God's Creation at the beautiful DaySpring
Episcopal Conference Center in Parrish, Florida.
Other walks will include the Labyrinth and a nature walk under the Canopy of Trees. Linda Bennie
will offer an inner experience with The Bonny Method of Guided Imagery & Music utilizing classical
music. This will allow us to explore new pathways to our own world of imagery and imagination. This
can include a sense of the Transcendent.
We will pray, we will sing, and we will worship together as fellow Christians. There will also be time
for fellowship and for individual relaxation and reflection. We hope you will join us for a spirit filled
weekend with our Trinitarian Sisters in Christ, as we grow in wholeness and holiness.
Just a closer walk with Thee
Grant it, Jesus, is my plea,
Daily walking close to Thee,
Let it be, dear Lord, let it be.
