This past month, many of the volunteers, guests, and extended community members of Lydia’s House were able to get together for a two-part retreat, around the theme of wholeness. One evening we all met at Vineyard Central Church, and the next Sunday we spent all day at the beautiful Transfiguration Center.

The retreat included both quiet times of prayer and solitude, and group times of sharing and getting to know one another. Peg Conway led us in making mandalas; in walking the labyrinth at the Transfiguration Spirituality Center; in being creative; in contemplating what wholeness means to us, and what it means to be a part of larger whole.

It was good to set aside time for prayer, contemplation, creativity, and community, and to have the opportunity to bring so many people together. Thanks to everyone who helped make this retreat happen!
