A Place of Grace
We are living in crazy times! From the constant change, to learning to embrace losses of all varieties to the state of our world. It is easy to find yourself in a state of exhaustion. We invite you to come together in a place of grace.
Join other women of Wellshire (and guests) – from all ages and walks of life – for a time of healing and wholeness.
The Psalms will provide our map for how people of faith respond and pray to God in all times – moving from lament to praise. Together we will explore scripture and join in “worshipful work” including a spirituality center, conversation, writing, art, and music to feed the soul. There will also be ample free time for rest and play.
