Women's Retreat, Spring 2019

2019 Retreat

Be still and know that He is God

The Daughters of the King (DOK) South Carolina Assembly sponsored a Women’s Retreat at Camp St. Christopher in April.   The Rev. Summer Gross, an Anglican priest, from Loganville, Georgia was the keynote speaker; the theme, "Be still and Know that He is God."  Using practical ideas, Summer led the attendees deeper in the walk with our Lord by finding peace through praying the scriptures, cultivating stillness in a world addicted to busyness, and how clinging to the Presence of God can take us through spaces of suffering and empower our prayer life. The Junior Daughters of the South Carolina Assembly also attended.  They sponsored fun activities such as making small stuffed bears for pediatric patients and painting crosses on canvas.    Another highlight of the weekend was a “Mary takes us through the Stations of the Cross Service.”  We joined Mary for a reflection on the Stations, as she guided us though the stations through her eyes then, and through her eyes now.   The weekend was truly a blessing for all in attendance.   The DOK will be sponsoring another retreat in March of 2020.  All women are invited.  Watch our webpage at  http://www.doksc.org/ for updates.
