Rachel's Vineyard is a post abortive ministry that offers much needed healing and allows you to examine your abortion experience, identify the ways that the loss has impacted you in the past and present, and helps to acknowledge any unresolved feelings that you may be struggling with since your abortion. The impacts of your abortion cause emotional numbness and secrecy that are often left unresolved and can surface later and created post abortion trauma with various symptoms.
Married couples, mothers, fathers, grandparents and siblings of aborted children, as well as persons who have been involved in the abortion industry have come to Rachel's Vineyard in search of peace and inner healing.
This program is rooted in the Lord Jesus Christ. Every exercise and Scripture provides an opportunity for the women and men who attend our retreat to experience Jesus and to dialogue with Him. As each gospel story is re-enacted in the Living Scripture exercises, the Lord is present. The role of our facilitators is to invite participants to open their souls to Christ, to receive Him in the Word and to experience Him through the exercises. The primary emphasis on the weekend retreat is for participants to enter and move through the process of grief, to recognize and deal with anger or numbness, to mourn the child(ren) they have lost, to renew their own spiritual life through the Living Scripture exercises, and to develop a spiritual relationship with their aborted child(ren). As participants mourn their children they suffer with the crucified Lord and experience the agony of death. The meditations and exercises reveal God’s compassion and forgiveness and invite repentance and reconciliation. By uniting themselves to Jesus through the Paschal mystery of their own lives, they rise with Christ in glory.
