What was it like for those caught up in the grip of darkness to be called by the Lord into the glorious light of freedom from bondage, health, and life?
Based on Paul’s exhortation in Ephesians 6 to stand firm in the truth, Sandy Cove will be hosting Ancient Voices, Sacred Stories to lead a Women Digging Deeper retreat. “Stand in the Light” will explore the stories of Eve, Potiphar's Wife, Mary of Magdala, Lydia, The Woman Caught in Adultery, and Jarius' Daughter, and the choices they made--whether to respond to God's light, or to turn towards darkness.
Saturday will feature an interactive workshop on how to stand firm in the power of God's Spirit and word. "Fear not," Jesus reassured His disciples, and us today, "For I have overcome." We will close with a time of worship, teaching, and prayer Sunday morning.
Bible studies and devotionals for each of the characters will provide further study for weeks following this retreat.
