3 Weeks Till Deeply Rooted!!

To be honest, we’ve had a lot of obstacles and hurdles this time around. There’s been spiritual warfare, disappointment, and discouragement as we pull this gathering together.

But each time we feel like we’re going under, God pulls a fast one on us and confirms that we are supposed to be doing this, even if, especially if, it’s hard.  We have an enemy who does not want women to connect, learn, be challenged, or encouraged. He wants us isolated and defeated. We’re not giving up.

Our lineup is spectacular and the workshops we’re offering are going to be amazing. We’re praying that God will bring the women who need to be here with us. We’re praying for the speakers to bring the Word boldly, and for the workshop leaders to lead us into conversation and creativity. We’re praying for worship to bring us deep into His presence.

We want you there. This is your invitation. Join us even if it’s only for one night or a few hours on Saturday. Don’t let the cost prohibit you from coming. We have a Pay-What-You-Can option and scholarships. Email us if you would like to apply for a scholarship.

See our full schedule here.

 

*We have different payment options as well as an opportunity to sponsor someone through a scholarship.

If finances are tight, we have a pay-what-you-can option.

You can also register at the door with cash or card.*

Kimberly Penrod Pelletier: The Essential Work of Waiting

“What I need from the Lord and what I bring to my waiting and what you bring to your waiting is unique to your story, to your baggage, to your sin patterns. And what God is unraveling in you in your waiting is unique to you.”

Kathy Khang: What Does It Mean to Wait?

One of the reasons we chose Waiting as the theme for our November gathering is that it would help prepare our hearts for Advent, that month-long waiting for Jesus to be born. Our whole universe is in an Advent season waiting for the Christ to return. Our hearts, by turns hopeful and despairing, are longing for the Light to break through. Historically God’s people are not stellar waiters. We take things into our own hands; begging for kings, complaining in the desert, impregnating servant girls, building golden calves. We don’t know how to wait well. We see Jesus on his knees in the wilderness imploring his father, and we don’t realize that’s supposed to be our posture while waiting too. Join us, on your knees, in this dark time as we wait for the Morning Star to rise.

Lord, how long must I wait? Will you forget me forever? How long will you turn your face away from me? How long must I struggle with my thoughts? How long must my heart be sad day after day? How long will my enemies keep winning the battle over me? LORD my God, look at me and answer me. Give me new life, or I will die. Then my enemies will say, “We have beaten him.” They will be filled with joy when I die. But I trust in your faithful love. My heart is filled with joy because you will save meI will sing to the Lord. He has been so good to me. ~Psalm 13: 1-6 

This powerful Psalm resonates with so many of us because it reflects our own heart and mind. Sometimes we’re waiting for God to give us something we want, but we’re also waiting for him to take things away from us. God calls us to our own Garden of Gethsemane where we cry, pray, and wait for him to take the cup from us.

Waiting well is a challenge for all of us. How do we do it gracefully? Prayerfully? How do we sustain hope in the “oil press” of our own lives? We’re asking the same questions. Join us as we explore together—through poetry, worship, teaching, and workshops— what it means to wait expectantly with a heart full of joy.
