Emergent Women's Retreat

Round Barn Retreat:
An Emergent Women’s Gathering

April 29-30, 2006

The Round Barn Inn
Bed & Breakfast
McCordsville, Indiana

Using the barn-raising metaphor inspired by our location, emergent women are gathering this Spring for a spiritual barn-raisin'! Metaphorically, we will 'clear our space' (share our histories, pain, and triumphs), 'set a new foundation' (envision a church or faith community that opens up and supports our experiencing God and God's creation more fully), and then - RAISE THAT BARN (give our vision 'legs'; put our dreams and hopes into action). Among the things we hope to accomplish is a publication by and for emergent women, and a solid network for communication and community.

The weekend will include contemplative prayer time, three major movements of dialogue/discernment/small group discussion, as well as an evening of sharing our personal gifts and passions and expertise. All details have not been finalized, but we anticipate the cost to be approximately $75, which includes three meals. (Housing is not included; rates in Indy run $48 and up.) Registration will be limited to the first 50 women. [If we are overwhelmed with response, a second event is likely.]
