Coming Soon - Light from The Shadows Retreat

The Light From the Shadows Retreat is coming up Friday, November 30 and will end on Saturday, December 1 in early afternoon. If you have signed up - wonderful! If you still would like to sign up and participate, please call Honey Creek at 265-9218 to see if there are any spaces available.

Here is a poem by Jennifer Lynn Woodruff that goes with the themes of the retreat:

Winter Sunset

The sky is blue and rose tonight
the clouds paint trails across the sun
the dark comes swiftly down the road
and all the day is left undone.

These are the colors that I claimed
the blue for darkness, pain, and loss
the rose for joys as yet unborn
and blossoming at countless cost;

These are the choices that we make
here in the shadow of the night
to know our ambiguity
and yet to live into the light

Not knowing when the light will come
Nor what will blossom from the pain
of roads that cannot be gone down
and days that will not come again.

In peace,

The Rev. Linda McCloud
The Episcopal Church of Our Savior at Honey Creek
