JHYM Retreat

Intentionally Left Blank: a weekend hybrid retreat for middle schoolers
October 22, 2021 - October 24, 2021


Our theme is Intentionally Left Blank. (Really!) There's something in human nature that seems to almost need to make meaning of life, sometimes at the expense of creativity, mystery and truly seeing the complexities and paradoxes. As Friends, we try to arrive at worship ready to listen, but a lot of the time we can't seem to get the lists and worries and busyness out of our active brains. What do you need? What aren't I hearing? What might we experience together if we don't have a full agenda of content laid out ahead of time?

This retreat, our first of the school year, will be a hybrid model, with Zoom sessions Friday and Saturday night and on Sunday morning. During the day on Saturday, we're organizing several regional in-person meet-ups, adhering to the most up-to-date health and safety protocols. Though full-time participation is encouraged, we anticipate that won't be possible for all, and we'll work with that. We really would just love to have JH'ers come!
