We have returned from our "escape," and what a great time it was. How important rest is!
We spent time biking many of the 40 miles of bike paths, rafting down 6 miles of the Deschutes River, swam, ate good, laughed, and played hard. I also spent some good time reading Mark Yaconelli's book, "Contemplative Youth Ministry." Good stuff.
I also was moved with awe just enjoying and appreciating the beauty of God's creation. Man...He's good!
I'm now ready for fall. Bring it on!
