An Art and Prayer Retreat led by Kit Ripley will be held November 10 to 12, 2017 at Kirkwood (formely Camp Kirkwood) in Wilmington, Ohio. Registration is limited to only 10 participants so do not wait to register! What does it mean to be “made in the image of God”? Which attributes of God are reflected in humanity? How does sin obscure the image of God in us? And how can we participate in the restoration of the image of God in our own lives? During this retreat, we will think about reflections, and you will be guided in the process of creating a self-portrait as you consider how God’s nature is reflected in your own life. Plan now to be a part!
