“That’s how it is with God’s love. Once you’ve experienced it, you spread his love to everyone. You want to pass it on!” – Kurt Kaiser, 1969, ‘Pass it On’
The 2019 Lutheran Women of SA-NT Retreat took place from January 18 to 20 with the theme ‘Pass it On’.
Attendees were encouraged by Pastor Nigel Rosenzweig and a range of guest speakers shared their stories of faith with the group.
The retreat raised offerings of $1828 and this will be shared with Australian Lutheran World Service, Lutheran Community Care and Blueprint Ministries.
The 2019 retreat was the final event to take place in Graebner Hall at Australian Lutheran College, as the residential boarding facilities have now closed.
Pastor Rosenzweig conducted a rite of de-commissioning for the site, so that attendees could remember and give thanksgivings for the blessings and fellowship these facilities have provided since 1968.
The LWSA-NT is seeking suggestions for future venues for the retreat.
