Reflections on “Meet Me at the Well”
Participants in our winter spiritual retreat offered the following words two weeks later:
It was an incredibly wonderful and meaningful experience that I hope can be replicated annually. ~Scott DeBlock
I wished I had been able to attend the 2nd day, because I was gaining a sense of reflection, closeness to God, and the fact that I did need that time, thought, and friendship I did not know I needed. It came at a time of crazy activity in my life, and the retreat helped me be quiet and calm. Thank you! Thank you! ~Joyce Brewer
I also learned about “I Wonder,” which I am excited to use at my church. ~Joyce Brewer
There’s never enough time! Wish we had more time to share with one another. That to me is the best thing we could do as a presbytery to heal and build trust. ~Tim Coombs
I am so grateful for the privilege of having time to “wonder together” and to get better acquainted with colleagues in ministry. The retreat was a soul-filling experience. More, please. ~Alexandra Lusak
A beautiful time with excellent leadership. ~Margaret Randall
It was an unexpected time of reflection I didn’t think I needed. ~Samantha Brewer
I love the facility.
-Food was great.
-Rooms were comfortable.
-Hiking trails were lovely.
-Retreat leaders were wonderful.
Please do more retreats – we need to feed our souls. Gathering for this purpose connects us in ways beyond fellowship opportunities (which I also like). Thank you! ~Holly Cameron
Plans are now forming for a spring retreat, working on a theme of “Trust.” Watch this website for additional information. And if you missed the first retreat, don’t feel bad… plan to get even!
