Relationship to the Collective (or the event): Member of
St. John’s United Methodist Core Group for the 787 Collective.
Describe the event in three sentences or less: The retreat was a marvelous opportunity to experience time away with other members of my church’s core group; to engage with participants from other churches and participating organizations; and to focus on where our initiative is heading.
What impacted you the most? The creative exercise, based on the passage from Mark 6. Once I got beyond the challenge of being creative in a “crafty” way, the activity was liberating. The main take-away for me: v.8-9: “You are the equipment.” The worship opportunities were contemplative and centering.
