Young Women's Encounter 2017- Sun (6/25/17)

Young Women of the Diocese gather in Windber, Pennsylvania to learn how we can better trust God.
The Young Women's Encounter theme for 2017 is "Trust in God with all your heart, and do not exalt your own wisdom." (Proverbs 3:5)
Pani Amy reads a miracle story about the Church Triumphant from the book the "Experiences During the Divine Liturgy".
For the ice breaker, we asked other participants about their their favorite camp or church song.
We also asked each other about whose advice we value.
In groups, the participants read about women in the Old Testament and thereafter shared how these women are beautiful examples of how to trust in God.
After evening prayers the young women reflected upon the following: (1) whether trusting God is challenging or comforting; and (2) what worldly advice about decision-making is prevalent, and what the church calls us to do instead.
