The next Faithwalking retreat is in November! Faithwalking is a curriculum that helps you attend to your emotional world. It gives you a language and a path for cultivating emotional intelligence. Currently the Delaware City Vineyard is helping our Region walk through the Faithwalking process. The cost is $125. The next Faithwalking 101 retreat will be Nov 1 and 2. Cost is $125 I would love for you to consider going. As we each attend to our emotional worlds, our ability to be present to God, ourselves and others will increase. This will bless the Abbey. This will bless you. Are you interested? Pray about doing this in November. See Kelsie with questions
