The DeKoven Center will host “An Autumn Quiet Day for Busy Women” on Wednesday, Oct. 13 from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Themes for the fall retreat include: Making room for God, Caring for Ourselves and Empowering One Another.

During this day, we will ask: How do we take care of ourselves physically, emotionally, and spiritually? How do we take time to listen to God? How can we trust our own wisdom and to live into all we were created to be?

Come join us as we explore prayer, wholeness, and self-care and as we give thanks for the mentors and role models in our lives.

Our leader: The Rev. Holly Whitcomb has been a minister in the United Church of Christ since her graduation from Yale Divinity School in 1978 and has served churches in Connecticut, Iowa, and Wisconsin. She is also a graduate of the two-year program for spiritual directors at the Shalem Institute in Bethesda, Maryland. A widely traveled retreat leader who directs Kettlewood Retreats, Holly is also a spiritual director and writer who has published dozens of articles on spirituality. She is the author of four books including Feasting with God and Practicing Your Path. Her latest book, The Seven Spiritual Gifts of Waiting, sold out in three weeks and had to be immediately reprinted. It also took her to New York where she did a taping for the Hallmark Channel’s show, New Morning. Holly lives in suburban Milwaukee with her husband John. They are parents of David and Kate, both in their 20s.

DeKoven is happy to welcome Holly back to us for this very special Day of Reflection!
