JYM Retreat

This Little Light's not Mine


Friday, September 13, 2019 - 5:00pm to Sunday, September 15, 2019 - 12:30pm


107 Keets Rd
Deerfield , MA


First, let’s be clear: I love the song this theme comes from!  But Friends’ understanding is that the Light is that of God. It’s not ours – it’s Divine. Whether we experience it as a night-light or a blazing flood-light, we have no ownership over it – only care for it and openness to it transforming us and flowing out and into the world to do more of the same.  We are ALL called to sense it, tend it, and let it shine!  Hope you can join us!  Registration starts August 8, 2019.
