A Blessed Weekend Away

This weekend I was at Koinonia Retreat Center with members of UST Camous Ministry giving a retreat for UST undergraduates.

The subject of the retreat was the Ten Commandments. Our goal was to help students see the commandments as a roadmap to growth of love of God and one another and to broaden their understanding of what the commandments ask of us.

The retreat was silent and I am enormously impressed at how well the students entered into that silence. The fact that we were in such beautiful surroundings on a gorgeous fall weekend may have helped.

I think all of us spent time between the retreat talks giving thanks for the beauty of creation.
I arise today with tremendous gratitude for the blessings of this time away with the students.
