Prayer Retreat

A couple of weekends ago, I took some of our youth on a prayer retreat to the YMCA Camp Lakewood in Potosi, MO...man, what a good weekend!...the centerpiece of the weekend was a prayer labyrinth that we set up for them, thanks in large part to John, Joyce, Barry, Mandi, Carrie, and Kim...it was cool to watch the students be affected in so many different ways, from letting go of their troubles, to recognizing their selfishness, to struggling with trying to forgive people that had hurt them...it was also fun getting to know some more students, including one that had never come to our youth group before...it was like he had been coming for years - much fun!...anyway, just thought I'd give you a brief update (especially since Jory gave me a hard time for not blogging about it yet)...oh, and by the way, if you see Jen or Brittney, tell them thanks from me for the abusive lip sync they directed at me :-)...it was pretty funny...

If you want to see what a labyrinth is like, check out this online version...

I agree, Fitz is incredibly cool. The prayer retreat really meant a lot to several of us who went, thanks so much Fitz for helping us to improve our prayer lives. You rock my face off.
