Beds, Essex and Herts held a 24-hour pre-Advent retreat at High Leigh, Hoddesdon in early November. Our theme was “Jesse to Jesus” and we looked at some of the ancestors of Jesus, in particular Miriam, Sarah, Ruth, Esther, and David, as well as Elizabeth and Zechariah, and Mary and Joseph.
We were a small group of women who shared, supported, laughed and cried with each other. We all came away refreshed, renewed and looking forward to our personal Advent reflections.
As always, Ruth Watkins created a thoughtful, meaningful worship focus. Our evening of liturgical dance organised by Esther was a great time of fun and fellowship. There is a short video on the MWiB Facebook page!
