Make Me Brave for Life
God, make me brave for life: oh, braver than this.
Let me straighten after pain, as a tree straightens after the rain,
Shining and lovely again.
God, make me brave for life; much braver than this.
As the blown grass lifts, let me rise
From sorrow with quiet eyes,
Knowing Thy way is wise.
God, make me brave, life brings
Such blinding things.
Help me to keep my sight;
Help me to see aright
That out of dark comes light.

This retreat weekend gives people an opportunity to examine their abortion experience, identify the ways that the loss has impacted them in the past and present, and helps to acknowledge any unresolved feelings that many individuals struggle with after abortion. This retreat is open to all; married couples, mothers fathers, grandparents, siblings and those involved in the abortion process.
