THE STORY OF RUTH - Twelve Moments in Every Woman's Life 
with DIANNE MESH & GISELE BAUCHE
Cosponsored with Queen's House Renewal & Retreat Centre  
 - FULL - Please contact the Refinery office (306) 653-3549 or email office@emmanuelrefinery.org, to have your name added to a waiting list.  A second offering of this                                                                                                                                                 workshop series is planned.

Though the story of Ruth is an ancient story, it is our story too. A beautiful inscription, found in a used copy of Joan Chittister's book, has shaped this workshop series.

"...be reminded of your inner courage and strength to follow the paths that are "life-giving". Every woman's journey is filled with challenges, adventures, disappointments and sorrows; but it also offers, in great abundance, profound joy and great rewards for our patient efforts.  All women must journey with wisdom, strength and conviction to definer ourselves as 'woman' in our society."

Using Joan Chittister's book The Story of Ruth - Twelve Moments in Every Woman's Life, we will visit the twelve moments that shape us, with the hope of coming home to one's self.

This workshop series will offer a unique blend of story-telling, discussion, and creative expression using mixed media. Participants will leave the session having created a special memento, capturing personal connections shared in the story of Ruth.

7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
