Fall Retreat–Stories Set Free–Itinerary & Packing List

Stories Set Free

***Please leave all electronics home unless your parents want you to bring them (Parents, your child can use my phone, as needed). This is not an issue I care to debate. If you decided to bring some gadget, it’s your call. I don’t need explanations for why someone “needs” his or her phone or iPod, etc. I’m asking for your/their sake, not mine. UNPLUG for just one weekend and ask God to fill the silence in a place whose  only distraction is beauty.
