On September 12 and 13, 19 women gathered in The Benedictine Center at St. Paul’s Monastery. Pastor Laurie led the group in a study of the biblical story of Ruth and Naomi, as a guide in reflecting on our own lives. It was a wonderful, spirit-filled experience.
While the participants wish everyone could have shared in the ‘high’ of this retreat, we do want to strongly recommend the book that was used for our study. It’s "The Book of Ruth: Twelve Moments in Every Woman’s Life" by Joan Chittister. The words are powerful. . .the art is inspiring. It’s truly a VERY special book. We encourage you to read it!
