While there are sometimes moments that can be heartbreaking doing what I do (funerals, hospice, hospitals, relationship endings, are a few), there are also moments that are filled with much joy and fun. Seven confirmation students spent time on retreat Friday afternoon/night until Saturday afternoon. Laughter, learning, play, chores, sleeping (or not), and just being together describes but a little of the honor of being with them.
Much thanks to parents who sent their youth, an adult leader who loves being with them and is simply amazing, and the generosity of a family who allowed us to spend time at their cabin! It was a great time with some awesome youth!
