JYM Retreat

Give Light and People Will Find a Way


Friday, September 15, 2017 - 5:00pm to Sunday, September 17, 2017 - 12:30pm


107 Keets Rd
Deerfield , MA


Based on a song created by Magpie, from a quote by Ella Baker, this retreat will explore how each of us can make a difference, one friendship at a time.  Have you been inspired to be kinder, more accepting, or more thoughtful because of the way someone you know and trust lives or talks?  What is Hope, and how we find our way in the dark – whether to the cabins at Woolman Hill or in the big wide world?  We’ll draw strength from the life stories of people who faithfully walked one step at a time and consider when we may have been a channel of Spirit's grace for others.  Join us for the first retreat of the year as we try to find our own spiritual flashlights.  Registration begins August 14, 2017.
