(check made out to Shepherd of the Sierra, be sure to write “Women’s Retreat” on your check.

Rev. Dr. Pamela Anderson

In the Celtic tradition, a "thin place" is the place where the veil that separates heaven and earth is transparent. It is a place where we experience a deep sense of God's presence in our everyday world. A thin place is where, for a moment, the spiritual world and the natural world intersect.

There are moments when we do feel the divine breaking through into our world. We feel unified and connected with God. It is not an intellectual knowing, it is felt in the spirit. It can be a sudden momentary awareness or profound unexplainable experience. Since we will be at Lake Tahoe for this women's retreat, we will be in the mountains where the air is thin both literally and figuratively. This retreat will help us to rediscover the "thin places" in our lives where we intersect with God's presence in divine moment and the ordinary stresses in our lives that leave us emotionally and spiritually "thin."  Come and get replenished and reconnect with God's divine presence.
