Deeply Rooted Women’s Retreat 2012 (video link)
The Women of FPU went to the coast the second weekend of February for a time of growth, community, cupcakes and the beach.
The title for the Deeply Rooted Women’s Retreat 2012 was “Strengthening Your Core.” Women students, staff and faculty spent the weekend discussing the principles and disciplines needed to maintain a strong foundation for life. Conversations centered around 1 Corinthians 9:24-27:
“24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. 25 Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. 26 Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. 27 No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.”
