EDIT: This retreat has been canceled with the possibility of a Spring Retreat.
This quote. It got to me. It spoke to me. Is it because I am a couch potato... maayyyyybeeee.
You guys, we are living in a world that DOES need us to get off our butts and to make our mark! You are teens who have the FREEDOM to actually do this! I mean, I am trying to make my mark by hoping my children will survive another day! I mean, sometimes 4 days go by and I realized I have not bathed them... You guys I have my "mark" cut out for me. It's my kids. And it's you guys too. So, let's spend some time trying to figure out how YOU are going to leave your mark. What has God created you for?
That's what this Fall Retreat is going to be about. Together we will learn about the Saints and the marks they have left on this world, the marks on our hearts and souls. We will also pray about what is God calling US to do? Spoiler Alert: It's not to be couch potatoes.
See you in September! ~Stacy
