Return from the retreat


Well, we all made it home safely and without any major mishaps. I am still in recovery mode today. I will post my complete recap later.

What are your initial thoughts?

I believe it went extremely well. I talked to the guys in my car over lunch and they all had positive things to say. They liked the skits and they loved the quirky names. (Yeh Tom & Diana!) The studies themselves seemed to give them a lot to think about. They liked praying through scripture.

It was a lot of material to present in a short amount of time. And I think we have a lot of opportunity for follow up. And building on the foundation that was laid over the weekend.

I sort of floated from group to group. I was encouraged to see that most seemed very open to sharing their struggles with their groups. Not all - but many seem to be looking for accountabiliy but a bit fearful of it at the same time.

Marvin playing air guitar is an image that will stay in my mind for a long time. And Laura teaching the girls to salsa dance Saturday night.

I only saw bits and pieces so am anxious to hear thoughs from others as well.
When's the next youth council meeting? March 3rd or 4th? :-)
