Women from many Swedenborgian churches and organizations came to Gathering Leaves retreat this past weekend in Kitchener, ON. The theme of this year’s event was “Waters of Life ~ Spirit of Love”. Exploring crystal clear expressions of faith through the creative and healing arts.
Their mission statement is:
We are gathering again to promote harmony among women who are associated with the various Swedenborgian organizations around the world. We acknowledge our common beliefs, explore our differences, develop respect for one another’s contributions, create a healing atmosphere, and celebrate our spiritual sisterhood. We promote charity and goodwill so we might say “No matter what form her doctrine and external form of worship take, this is my sister; I observe that she worships the Lord and is a good woman.”
