Wesley United Methodist Women
Luncheon & Special Program
Sunday, March 19, 11:30am
Everyone is invited to a Luncheon and to hear speakers in a Special Program discussing end-of-life issues such as hospice care.
The complementary lunch will also be special; we will enjoy temaki, hand-folding our own small pieces of nori, filling these individual makizushi with sushi rice and flavored vegetables. Join us!
Come to the Lake Tahoe Fellowship (LTF) Retreat and join the fellowship, spiritual renewal, and relaxation at the beautiful and peaceful Zephyr Point, Lake Tahoe.
This year’s guest speaker will be Colleen “Coke” Tani. She currently attends the Pacific School of Religion and is engaged in the early processes for ordination. Her theme for the week will be “Dissolving the Walls and Opening our Hearts: For Such a Time as This.”
Deadline to register is March 13; early bird discount before Feb. 28. A late fee will apply after March 13. See <www.wesleysj.net/upcomingevents> for a link to Registration Forms.
This Retreat is attended by people from multiple churches. The maximum attendance is approximately 60 attendees, so I recommend registering early. If you have any questions, contact Jim Mar <firstname.lastname@example.org>, Roy Takeuchi, or Its Yokota <email@example.com>.
The LTF Retreat goes back to 1925, when Issei and Nisei gathered at Northern California Young People’s Christian Conference (NCYPCC) events.
I encourage you, regardless of age, to consider attending this Retreat, to enjoy six days of Christian fellowship, make new friends, listen to inspiring speakers, and enjoy and relax in a peaceful, secluded, lakeside setting.
I found this interesting link “The Domei (NCJCCF) and the Early Young People’s Christian Conference (YPCC)”, which details some early history of this Fellowship <https://lakesequoiaretreathwordpress.com/histories/the-domei-ncjccf-and-the-early-young-peoples-christian-conference-ypcc/>.
Hope you will consider attending (if not this year, perhaps next year).
