Sisters in Spirit Women's Retreat
“WHERE IS GOD WHEN I AM AFRAID?”
Keynote Speaker: Rev. Dr. Dee Cooper
Let’s face it, we live in a world with many opportunities to be afraid. So much of our world, our nation, our daily input from others is influenced and driven by this strong emotion …. FEAR. When we feel afraid, it is easy to feel alone or isolated, and even wonder, “where are you, God?” To be clear, fear is a gift of God that warns us we need to pay attention to our environment and our safety. And yet, fear increases adrenaline in our system, which impacts our health. When we are experiencing fear, we cannot access the cerebral part of our brain to make wise choices, decisions, or even consider options.
During this weekend, we will consider how our own perspective of God impacts our understanding of fear. We will explore the impact of fear in our lives and in our bodies. We will practice techniques of moving fear through our bodies, so that we can be fully present and responsible in our lives and authentically connected to each other. We will also wonder, what would we be doing if we were not so afraid?
