We did a virtual retreat with Renew Restore Refresh yesterday. There were 47 who read during the week and 30 on Zoom. The book was so appropriate for the struggles we are all going through at this time. Our retreat was a huge success.
I bought these mugs as gifts for my annual women's convention and they were a big hit. My theme for this convention and the mugs inscription of renew, restore, refresh fell right in line. Thank you.

One of the consistent issues COVID-19 has caused is a feeling of isolation. This isolation
has created a deep longing for community and connection. The church can step into this
void and foster connection within the larger community in which you serve.
One of the best ways to foster community within your women’s ministry is through a retreat. Why? Because spending extended time together will allow women to share stories. It will create a setting that encourages candid conversations about the things that really matter. A retreat offers the possibility to form new and lasting friendships—relationships that will continue long after the retreat comes to an end.
How can your retreat most effectively build community? It’s important to provide a safe environment, keeping social distancing requirements in mind while planning your space and layout. Here are some additional ideas to consider:
• Provide name tags. Being addressed by name fosters the feeling: I belong!
• Plan to seat retreat participants in circles. Making eye contact and seeing facial expressions promote camaraderie.
• Plan icebreakers geared to identify specific interests or hobbies. Try open-ended sentences that can be quickly answered by each participant, like “My favorite thing to do on a rainy day is . . .”
• Allow plenty of time for both group and casual discussions—creating the beginnings of community.
• Do all you can to ensure an emotionally safe place where confidentiality is respected. Remind women about confidentiality often.
Above all else, pray for greater community among your women and the wonderful gift of belonging.
