Okay, so it’s not retreating in failure. Its retreating to work on spiritual connection.
This is my 7th Fall Retreat weekend with the Crossroads Middle School Ministry. We have another good batch of kids this year. Our only downer so far is the somewhat uncooperative weather. Rain tends to dampen (no pun intended) outdoor activity.
But we won’t let that dampen our spirits. Our goal, as leaders, is to foster closet relationships with the kids being there for them and leading them in the ways of God. Being cooped up indoors pugs us closet to them. =D. Better opportunities to mingle.
