Retreat: God is the Weaver, We are the Tapestry
Fran led this retreat for the women of the Lyme Congregational Church, in Lyme, NH, on April 28, 2012. The first session looked at how we are created by God is God's image, and at the unique threads that make up each of our tapestries. Session 2 looked at the tapestry of faith community. Session 3 looked at the tapestry of our local community. (Session 4 tied it all together around questions of discernment and addressed some of the questions they were facing as a congregation; the audio recording failed after the first 30 seconds)
