Yes, I'm retreating again. But this time I'm leading the retreat. I'm going with 16 folk from my church to Scottish Churches House in Dunblane for a long weekend. I've been putting together what I hope will be a fun programme along with some worship. I love messing with things like that. In another life I'd like to be a retreat hostess/organiser/whatever. I'm looking forward to huddling together in the small chapel, reputed to be 13th Century. Of course its what happens outside the programme that will probably make the weekend. I found myself checking out the Wifi availability of the accommodation before convincing myself that I really could manage for a couple of days without an internet connection. It will be good to do some old fashioned face to face connecting. None of this online chat, though isn't it fun? I love the way things come across sometimes when they're written in an instant message. Not always as intended - but it adds a whole new dimension to conversations. Hoping for a new dimension at the weekend retreat but offline.
