Edgewood Weekend Retreat

Sharing Our Spiritual Journeys

October 19 - 21  


 We often hear from people of all ages, “I’m not religious, but I am “spiritual.” What is the difference? What does it mean to be “spiritual”? 

To provide the opportunity to reflect upon and share our “spiritual stories,” Jackie Himelright-Smith and Ed Smith will facilitate a retreat the weekend of October 19-21 at the UCC Parish House. Registration is open to all, but limited to ten participants for housing purposes. We encourage those who are wondering what “spiritual” or “spiritual experience” means, as well as those who have memories of experiences they would like to explore further to join us in this sacred time together.


Jackie and Ed have facilitated community-building groups at Edgewood in the past based on their experience in attending workshops with M. Scott Peck and the Foundation for Community Encouragement. Elements of community building and intentional listening will be part of the retreat experience as we explore the spirituality of community through a safe, informal atmosphere with time for individual reflection, pair sharing, and group sharing. (Scholarship assistance is available). 


Please contact Jackie or Ed for more details about registration.
