church retreat

We leave for our annual church retreat tomorrow. It is always over Easter weekend and is a great time of spiritual renewal for all involved. Here are a few of my favorite things:

1. seeing old friends

2. spending time working together with old friends

3. making new memories

4. shopping and organizing the food for camp

5. staying in the cook's cabin

6. the beauty of the camp

7. the intense lessons

8. seeing the kids learn the lessons

9. listening to the kid's perceptions of the lessons

10. hoping that the camp's lessons cause growth for the kids involved
