You’re invited to our Spring Women’s Retreat, March 29-31, at West Holden Beach

Enjoy time away to learn, relax, make new friends, and reconnect with old ones. At this year’s Retreat, Presbyterian pastor, author, and speaker MaryAnn McKibben Dana will explore the idea of “yes, and….” From Moses to Ruth to Jesus, the Bible is full of people boldly saying “yes, and…” as they accept what life throws their way and build upon it. Our program will blend Scripture, theology, psychology, literature, pop culture, music, and more, as we dream, discuss, and develop tools for thriving in the midst of chaotic, often unpredictable lives…and have fun, too!

The Rev. MaryAnn McKibben Dana is a writer, free-range pastor, speaker, improviser, and professional coach living in the Washington, DC area. She is author of God, Improv, and the Art of Living, and Sabbath in the Suburbs, a Chalice Press bestseller and a “must read” by Ministry Matters. Her writing has appeared in TIME.com, The Washington Post, Huffington Post, Religion Dispatches, Journal for Preachers, and The Christian Century, and in a monthly column for Presbyterians Today for three years. She served as co-chair for NEXT Church and is a sought-after speaker, preacher, and conference leader. MaryAnn is a graduate of Rice University in Houston, Texas and received her M.Div. in 2003 from Columbia Theological Seminary. She is a mother of three, an avid muffin-maker, and an occasional marathoner.
