Being at Shekinah

As I prepare for our Western Half Yearly Gathering at the Shekinah Retreat Center, I’m pondering the Mission Statement of our Mennonite hosts,

“Shekinah is to be a setting where all who come, have opportunity to experience the presence and glory of God through discovery, reflection, interaction, community and nature.

In a practical sense this means we seek to facilitate the meaningful interaction of people with the Creator, the wholesome interaction of people with creation and the interaction of people in community.”

I find myself wondering and imagining what joyful, reflective and sacred ways we will find to be together in this space.
