Staff on Retreat
Staff retreats are so necessary and so hard to get organized. Especially when a number of staff work part-time and have other responsibilities outside of the church. But this past Tuesday a good number of the staff did get away for a whole day (8:00 am- 4:00 pm) to an Episcopalian Retreat House up in the mountains behind the church. It was so important to physically remove ourselves from the church and its many distractions so that we could think about the church and its many challenges. I came back energized and encouraged that we are taking steps in the right direction with the right people. How good it is to not do ministry alone.
