|Small Group Time|
During the five-hour drive to the retreat, I had the opportunity to ride along with some ladies who are newer to our ministry and begin to get to know them better, which I thoroughly enjoyed since they are from campuses other than St. Mary’s. The focus of this retreat was centered on how to build deeper, more authentic relationships in the midst of our crazy schedules, long to do lists, and a culture that doesn’t always encourage this. On the drive home, we had a great chance to unpack this idea and discover some great next steps about how to live out the things we learned over the weekend.
I really can’t explain the importance of retreating and how weekends like this do so much to help us connect with students and challenge them in their pursuit of God. So many of you helped provide funds to cover travel expenses and registration costs for students who could not. Thank you for helping us provide this space for our students. You are making a difference in the lives of these students. I love partnering with you!
