Who: Hosted by Reverend Geraldine Howard, M.A., M. Div. and the Spiritual Life Retreat Committee


The theme of this year’s Summer Sabbath is The Art of Being Human: Working With a Creative Spirit. Facilitated by Rev. Geraldine Howard, the retreat will explore the sacred space of art and the ways it is displayed in our everyday lives. Art affords us a kind of freedom, balance, and a means of connection in a busy world. We will ponder some of the unusual and unexpected ways art is reflected in scripture and movement. We will also propose ideas for living a deeper spiritual life. There will be time for both personal reflection and group sharing.


About Reverend Howard: Reverend Howard, a Lay Leader at The Riverside Church in The City of New York, was drawn to this community of believers by the love of God and the opportunity to deepen her relationship with others through service and times of prayer. She is committed every day to bring out in us—and to inspire in others—the good zeal that leads to God.


Important: All guests must provide proof of immunization or have a negative swab test within 24 hours of arriving at Mariandale.
