Spiritual retreat - the idea is to take time to reflect, get away, and focus on God. It should be a time of refreshment and growth. At least that's the idea. It's harder when you are leading these things and going crazy trying to get all the last minute details together.
Anyway, we are taking our church on a spiritual formation retreat this weekend. Our focus is our conceptions of God - reflecting on how we talk about and picture God, how that affects our relationship with God and others, how we can grow in our understanding of God, and how we can expand our ability to see God working in the world.
It should be a good time (if I can manage to get everything together for it). There's been too much on my mind stressing me out so I've not planned ahead for this weekend like I should have. So I'll be off retreating for the weekend. Hopefully it will actually be a retreat.
