We had a one day retreat recently for the members of our church. Not everyone could make it, but about 100 of us met together at a school in the north of the city (ECA). In the morning there were various sessions and workshops, all with the purpose of edifying and encouraging everyone to continue to find balance in life and perseverance in ministry.
I was in about half the sessions, the rest of the time I was playing outside with the wee boys.
It was a beautiful sunny morning, but then the rain poured down all afternoon. It didn't stop many of the men from playing soccer... the rest cheered from the sheltered sidelines!
