Women of all ages are invited to join us at NaCoMe for the whole weekend or for the day as we enjoy God's creation and each other November 15-17. The Rev. Dr. Lillian “Lil” Smith who is an ordained minister in the PC(USA) will be our speaker as we reflect on how we can better listen to God in our chaotic world. Lil earned a Doctor of Ministry (2018) and a Master of Divinity (2011) with a Certificate in Pastoral Care at Perkins School of Theology, a Degree in the Art of Spiritual Direction (2011) at San Francisco Theological Seminary, and is a trained spiritual direction supervisor with Together in the Mystery (2016).
In 2017, Lil co-founded Retreat House Spirituality Center, Inc., an intentional spiritual and religious, contemplative community of spiritual directors and spiritual formation leaders working in a covenant relationship to serve individuals and groups who wish to deepen their relationship with God through spiritual direction, education, prayer and retreat offerings. We look forward to Lil sharing her gifts and time with us. Registration details will be coming soon. We expect another wonderful weekend of deeper connection with God and one another. Mark your calendar to join us.
