The Way of Love: A Women’s Retreat
Open to: Women 25–50 (Mar­ried or Unmar­ried)
One of our most pop­u­lar retreats, the Way of Love retreat is based on the pas­sage found in 1Corinthians 13, “Love is patient and kind; love is not jeal­ous or boast­ful; it is not arro­gant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irri­ta­ble or resent­ful; it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.”
