We are designed to be in community - to learn, live, and love one another as sisters of Christ. In John 4, Jesus meets the woman at the well and brings her eternal life, transformation, and healing. She shares her story with others and returns to community where others believe. Together, the Women at the Well, will experience transformation in community through scripture, speakers, and sharing. For questions, please contact Rev. Joy Dister-Dominguez, (817) 731-0701, firstname.lastname@example.org – all events held at Arborlawn United Methodist Church, 5001 Briarhaven Drive, Fort Worth, Texas.

Loving Myself for God’s Sake: Healing Through Self-Care
Saturday, April 14, 2018 | 9:00am – 4:00pm | Catered Lunch Included | $25/woman
Childcare available with advanced registration
This all-day workshop will address our three loves: love of God, love of neighbor, and love of self. Because many of us have difficulty with the last love, love of ourselves, we shall start there. The Biblical mandate to love ourselves will be grounded in Scripture and meaningful ways to live this out will be offered. (Luke 10:27ff, parable of the Good Samaritan)
Second, the focus on love of the other will be on loss of significant relationships. Many of us live in what will be termed “Holy Saturday.” We have just gone through the Lenten and Easter season of the liturgical year. We can easily identify with the betrayal of Maundi Thursday, the despair of Good Friday. When we have lost someone or something, we may be in such grief that it is difficult to move to Easter Sunday so quickly. Our emotional process will not allow it. We are still in bewilderment over the loss; we are trying to find a different normal. The blaring trumpets and flowering lilies of Easter Sunday can be hard to face. This section of the workshop will help us in the “Holy Saturday” of our feelings.
Third, our focus will be on the Samaritan woman at the well (John 4). Exercises in healing will be introduced as we learn to live into our identity as Beloved and as royalty. As we move from one Samaritan to another, from “the side of the road” to a well of living water, my prayer is for a workshop community of healing, awareness, support, and empowerment. Presented by professor, author, speaker, Rev. Dr. Jeanne Stevenson-Moessner, Perkins School of Theology, Professor of Pastoral Care.
Friday, September 21, 7:00 pm -9:00 pm and Saturday, September 22, 2018, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
