Southwood Women’s Weekend


Southwood Women’s Weekend

“You teaching was wonderfully difficult!” This is a comment from one of the ladies who attended the August Women’s Weekend with Julie Sparkman. With many tears and much laughter, Julie guided us through the material from her study, Unhitching from the Cray Train: Finding Rest in a World You Can’t Control. The theme that runs through the study is from Matthew 11:28-30: “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

What does it mean to be on the crazy train? it means deciding that the picture you have in your head of what you want your life to look like is not merely a want, but a need. When we decide that picture is a need, rather than a want, we hop on the crazy train that will take us to many crazy and unhappy places! Learning to submit our desires, our picture, to God is a continual process of trust and repentance and abiding in him as daughters, not orphans.

Starting Thursday, September 6 from 9:00-11:30am at the church (childcare provided) and 6:45pm at Cathy Mayer’s house (no childcare provided), we will study more in depth what it means to live as daughters and not orphans.

Who should come? Women. All ages. All stages. We need each other. This study is designed to equip us for the work of ministry and engage us with other women in community at Southwood. We hope to see you Thursdays this Fall!
