Elim Women’s Retreat - Day 1

We’re back at beautiful Elim Lodge, just north of Peterborough! This has become one of our favourite places to sing. Sweet people, the sun glistening on the lake, and always interesting speakers create a relaxing and invigorating getaway.

This weekend, we’re leading worship for the Elim Women’s Retreat. Almost 100 women of all ages and backgrounds have gathered for 3 days of worship, teaching, and fellowship.

We’ll be leading four worship sessions, and singing a concert of our own songs tomorrow afternoon. Our speaker is Tara Rye, a writer and teacher from Omaha, Nebraska. Her topic is The 7 Times Jesus Prayed and, judging by tonight, I think we’re in for a great journey.

I just have to say: I love leading worship for retreats! These ladies came ready to worship, and tonight was amazing! They sang with joy and passion. Love it, love it, love it!

Looking forward to tomorrow...
