‘Spiritual Life Retreat’ held at Camp Findley

Recently, a “Spiritual Life Retreat” was sponsored by Cornerstone District United Methodist Women at Camp Findley in Findley Lake. The theme was “In the Garden.” Music was provided by Dottie Blakely. The Rev. Debbie Hamlin and Nancy Preston led the morning worship. Appropriate scriptures , hymns, and a solo were shared. Four interesting workshops continued the theme. Flower Arranging, “Beauty and Harmony,” was led by Margaret Brawn with Psalm 46:10. Herb Planting, “Health and Hospitality,” was led by Phyllis Cairns using Matthew 13:31-32. Bread of Life, “Love and Nourishment,” was led by Debbie Hamlin using Luke 13:20-21. Bird House Painting, “Home and Family,” was led by Jody Terhune using Matthew 6:33. A lunch was served by the camp staff to workshop participants, and volunteers there working on camp clean-up also enjoyed the lunch. Following lunch, the ladies assembled for Holy Communion, hymns, and prayer. It was a very inspirational day.
