Marriage in the Holy Spirit: A retreat reflection

2M ago
A reflection on our most recent Marriage in the Holy Spirit Retreat with members of the Lighthouse district The Marriage in the Spirit Retreat was so beautiful and came in such a great time in our marriage. It wasn’t that we were going through anything monumental or having any big issues that we needed to work through. Rather, it provided necessary time and space to have important conversations during our first year of marriage. "...it was such a blessing to carve out uninterrupted time to really talk about these things..." A lot of the talks were similar to topics we discussed during marriage ..read more

Hear a little bit about what our senior women have been up to recently! The Daughters of Hope are enjoying another great year of fellowship in the Holy Spirit and sisterhood in the Lord at our monthly meetings. We began with a welcome back, Fall-themed get-together at Mary Quense's lovely back yard.  The highlight was sharing memories of Edwarda Harmon and Marie Romero, who both had recently passed.  In November, we welcomed the new Church year with appys, desserts, and noisemakers. In January, we celebrated the Epiphany with cookies, carols, and gifts.  We look forward to a Len ..read more

Gratitude for Small Groups

Three years ago, I moved to New Jersey. I had just graduated from college, we were in the middle of a pandemic, and I was moving to a strange place, starting a new job, and meeting completely new people. At first, I was worried joining a small group might be adding too much to what seemed like an already full plate. However, it became exactly what I needed. The women that I got to know through small group were so helpful in navigating this time of transition in life. It was a great space to talk through life: challenges with work, relationships, family. I was incredibly grateful I could talk a ..read more

An Easter Exhortation

Happy Easter brothers and sisters! I don’t know about you but sometimes I find it easier observing Lent than I do celebrating the Easter season. By no means, am I saying that giving up food and drink etc. is more enjoyable than biting into a piece of Easter candy. Rather, for some reason submitting myself to the rigors of Lent comes more naturally than celebrating Easter. Why is this so? As I search for an answer, I think of the disciples on the road to Emmaus who didn’t recognize Jesus until the breaking of the bread, or Mary Magdalen who didn’t recognize Jesus until He spoke her name, and St ..read more

Q&A with Ignite Teen Q: What is the YES Retreat? A: For me, the yes retreat is when many communities from all over the country come together for 2 days to worship the Lord. To meet new people, to get out of your comfort zone, and to experience the Lord in a different way. Q: What was the theme of the retreat and what is one take away from it? A: The theme was “The Word was made Flesh” and for me, I think it’s a really good theme. During this retreat, we talked about womanhood, what it means to be a disciple of God, and how to pray. We were in small groups and I loved that part during the r ..read more

It's time for a glory story about small things and great love. A visiting member of the Petros community shared with us how impactful our People of Hope bulletin has been in sharing God's love and her own love for life in community! Be encouraged by Kristine's words of thanksgiving below. As a community of disciples on mission, we know that life in community is just that: a way of life. The life of a disciple is made up on many little moments, many small things lived with great love. As the People of Hope Office, we try to capture and communicate some of the abundance and joy of this life thr ..read more
