19th Annual Women's Spiritual Retreat

greenspun.com : LUSENET : A.M.E. Today Discussion : One Thread

I was blessed on May 29th-31st, 2003 to attend the 19th Annual Women's Spiritual Retreat hosted by Ebenezer A.M.E. Church in Fort Washington, Md.

The retreat was held at the Hyatt Regency in Crystal City, Va. It truly was a blessed event, I have attending for 8 years and every year I come back home - renewed, revived, and rejuvanated!!

Rev. Dr. JoAnn Browning and the Women of Ebenezer A.M.E. Church are anoited women of God. From the time we arrive to the hotel until the day we leave to go back to our homes, we are greeted with love, and you can feel the "presence" of the Lord at the retreat.

Over 3,000 women from all over the country, come together and we are blessed and spiritually fed with preaching and teaching from various women of ministry, Min. Yolanda Adams, Dr. Jackie McCullough, Dr. Peggy E. Wall(my Pastor), Dr's Ann Lightner- Fuller, Carolyn Showell, Bishop Vashti M. McKenzie and the list goes on and on....

Next year the retreat will be held June 3-5, 2004. It would be a sacrifice worth making if you could attend this conference next year. We meet women from as far as Africa and Bermuda who come to be blessed by God through these powerful women.

Call the church for more information... but make the committment and come and experience this "Holy Ghost" conference.

God bless Rev. JoAnn and the women of Ebenezer A.M.E. Church, Fort Washington, M.D. and I will see you next year...

God bless, Dawn K. Thomas

I know the answer... but not the question. Yes, it was an awesome and spirit filled retreat. Do you know the name of Rev. Weems website where she posted pictures from the 19th Annual Women's Spiritual Retreat? God bless... you captured the event well.

I sit here as if I were in class, waving my hand back and forth in the air, bursting with confidence that here's a question I finally know the answer to.:)

http://www.sistersummit.com/retreat5.html (pictures) www.sistersummit.com/daughters_of_miriam.html(Rev.Renita's words) I searched for all I could find on Rev.Weems, and Rev.Copeland after my sister blessed me with each one's tape from that conference. I play them repeatedly,and Within a Month my 18yr.old son and I made our first service at Ebenezer. (7/20/03)

Thanks for your help... but I couldn't get Rev. Weem's website to open. Could you try again. I thought she said her site would be something like "innerspirit."

The correct website is www.somethingwithin.com At the website you can click on the Daughters of Miriam and see the pictures of the Ebenezer event. Be blessed.
