A note from Billie Blair, Director:
We’ve been here for TEN years! Can you believe it?! The years have gone by quickly.
I’ve enjoyed each and every person who has come to Tallgrass over the years. I hope
to see many of you again on June 25th, to help us celebrate. A great team of women
has been working to make this happen for the Center. We’ll have good food, things
to do and see, and we’re working on providing some live entertainment!
I tell folks who ask about this ministry that I feel like what I’m doing here is
not only what I believe I’m called to do, but I’m doing what God created me to do -
walk with women along their path for awhile, supporting, caring, just being with them
at times, as well as encouraging them to find their healing and their passion in life.
I’ve ben honored to work with some wonderful facilitators, offering a range of retreats
from clearing clutter to finding our passions, to working with horses to find oneself.
We’ve participated in the Forgiveness Ceremony, told stories, made prayer flags, beads,
and sticks. We’ve had a harpist, singers, writers, and other artists here. We’ve taken
wildflower walks and made paper with prairie plants. . . and sometimes women came
alone or with a friend to find time and space to rest, reflect and restore.
It’s been an incredible ten years for me. I’ve learned so much from YOU.
Thank you for sharing the gift of who you are with me. I’d love to see many
of you come join us for this special-to-me day!
My sister will be here in the evening, gifting the Retreat Center and anyone who wants to stay
with an outdoor movie. The movie will start after dark, of course, so folks might want to tour a little of
Chase County, have supper at the Hitching Post in Matfield Green (or bring a sack supper and picnic
in the Center’s yard), then join us about 9 for the movie. We don’t know yet what movie we’ll be viewing,
but just imagine sitting under the stars. eating popcorn and watching a movie together!
Please bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on.
With you all in God’s holy embrace,
Rev. Billie Blair, Pastor in the Pasture
