A FIVE-DAY JOURNEY THROUGH HEALING - AVAILABLE AUGUST 21-26

Many of us are among the walking wounded. Sometimes we know it; oftentimes, we don’t. We just know that we feel driven, drained, and/or chronically distracted, all of which are symptoms of unhealed, unacknowledged, or under-healed pain. Betty will offer this same retreat at Genesis from AUGUST 21-26, 2020.

How many are your works, O Lord! In wisdom you made them all, the earth is full of your creatures. There is the sea, vast and spacious teeming with creatures beyond number- living things both large and small.
- Psalm 104:24-25
