Autumn ushers in a cornucopia of sensory changes — cooler days and nights, brilliantly colored cascading leaves and abbreviated evening daylight. Autumn also offers a spiritual transition — an invitation – to re-access who we are and what direction we choose to live.

For those with a desire to find the rhythm of fall, My Heart’s RE-Treat will be held Oct. 26, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., at Johnston Woods Retreat Center.

This interdenominational women’s event is being hosted by Broad Street United Methodist Church.

“The goal is simply for a community of sisters to RE-lax, RE-flect, RE-new, RE-solve, and RE-joice in fellowship as worthy women RE-deemed by grace,” a retreat representative said.

Amy Carroll of Proverbs 31 Ministries will be the guest speaker. Her topic is “King of Hearts: Jesus, Lover of a Woman’s Soul.” She asks the question: Does God truly care about every season in a woman’s heart? Amy follows Mary of Bethany and her close friendship with Jesus to find the answer to this question.

Two other scheduled speakers are recent graduates of Proverbs 31 Ministries’ She Speaks Conference.

Shauntae Brown White, Ph.D., will present “In the Company of Women.” Dr. White has a passion for women and is known for her engaging workshops in which she challenges audiences to apply learned knowledge to their everyday lives. She is an associate professor in mass communication at North Carolina Central University. Also, she has written several academic articles and book chapters and is the author of the upcoming book “The First Lady: African American Pastors’ Wives in Their Own Words.”

Yvette Mehling will guide participants through her topic “When Grace Intersects Chaos.”

She said, “the chaotic life is bombarded with a flurry of complications, challenges, and strife constantly threatening to throw us off balance. Regaining balance can be just as daunting as understanding the chemistry concept of pH factor, but it can be simplified. Embracing pHilippians daily can lead to an amazing spiritual transformation.”
