"Tell out my soul" 
Our Voices in the World 
A woman's retreat at 
Cross Roads Camp and Retreat Center

October 13 - October 15


Lead by our Pastor, Dale Selover, this women's retreat asks 
some probing and important questions, such as
does each of us have a voice that is distinctively our own? 
What are we saying when we open our mouths?
Which voices are we listening to? 
Are we aware of the voiceless among us? 
Are we listening for the "still, small voice" of our loving Creator? 


Henry Wadsworth Longfellow called the human voice the "organ of the soul." Let us look, together, at how we express ourselves in a world of constant communication, sound bites, and ear buds.

to serve all people, following the example of Jesus, and 
to strive for justice and peace in all the earth?

The Church confesses Christ, who has broken down the dividing wall (Ephesians 2:14). Christ, our
peace, has put an end to the hostility of race, ethnicity, gender, and economic class. The Church
proclaims Christ, confident this good news sets at liberty those captive behind walls of hostility
(cf. Luke 4:18).
