Womens Retreat 2017


In years gone by, those words were a call to slow down from the everyday bustle and take time to delight in the company of loved ones, to rebuild the unwritten customs of our past, and to enjoy together a bounty of wholesome foods. Corrie Ten Boom says this of her family table – The oval table in our dining room was the gathering place for hopes and dreams, the listening place for prayers and petitions, and the loving place for joy and laughter. In essence, the family table was a place to SAVOR the goodness of life.

We desperately want to SAVOR the life we have been given – our faith, family, friends and food – to enjoy life abundantly. Yes, that’s want we want, but so often we miss it because the daily demands of life keep us busy and distracted.

Ladies, it’s time to revive the family table – to gather the people you love around your table and feed them with love and honesty and creativity. Feed them with your hands and the flavors and smells that remind you of home and beauty and the best stories you’ve ever heard, the best stories you’ve ever lived.
