This weekend I had the pleasure of accompanying 4 children connected to the LVUC community to Children’s retreat. This was such a beautiful way to be in ministry and community with them. The five of us engaged in spiritual practices, worship, community games, vespers and movie night! Our cabin won the prize for most decorated door in the history of Children’s retreat. George really enjoyed the nature walks and the lead skit at campfire. Ollie loved the labyrinth rug in the sacred space, and enjoyed being in a community where he was allowed to be just as he is. Issac made a number of new friends and enjoyed the organized games and Maya told me every 30 minutes how much fun she was having, and now has a “ five year plan” to come back every year she is allowed and THEN as a youth leader! I can’t wait to see what the next Children’s retreat holds!
