This leader guide includes the script, supply list, and instructions the leader needs to facilitate Session 1: Beach Bag of the SeaSide Escape Retreat Program.
We usually pack our bags full of things we might need for a day at the beach. During this session we take a lighthearted look at what happens when we pack those bags too full. Carrying a lot of luggage around doesn't make for a restful day!
We tie this concept to the story of Sarai from the book of Genesis, focusing on chapter 12 for this session. Sarai had some “baggage” herself, and it made it hard for her to trust God. During this session women are challenged to consider what baggage they have that’s making it hard for them to trust God.
