 Get Acquainted with the Bible Retreat - September 2017

 

So what do you do at a "Bible" retreat?

 

Do crosswords and word searches and arrange books of the Bible blocks to get us familiar with the Books of the Bible.

Play silly games.

 

Talk about the Bible as a lens through which to view the world. 

 

Take a late night walk looking at the world through God’s lens. Genesis 1: “And God saw that it was good.”

 

Bake the bread for World Communion Sunday.

 

Talk about the difference between fact and truth.  Talk about the Bible as family story . 

 

Make (and eat ) our own pizzas.

 

Sleep?

Cook breakfast and feed our parents.

 

Thank you to Lynn Hills for coordinating the bread baking, Chris Olson for the “early” shift, Mike Melton for being with us overnight, John Olson for supervising the cooking of breakfast and Bill Meyer for set-up.
