Dear Madison Square Presbyterian Church,
I want to thank you all
for the sponsoring me by giving me the opportunity to go to the Young
Adult weekend retreat at Mo-Ranch back in September. It was a well
needed time of rejuvenation, relaxation, and even more time to reconnect
with old friends, and make new friends. The best part of the weekend
was the conversations I had with others around my own age but of all
walks of life on the topic of young adults. Mostly these conversations
revolved around young adults in the church, specifically the PC(USA)
church, but also about young adults in the world in general. I came
back with ideas and with questions that I continue to think about. The
participants of this retreat, and of past young adult retreats continue
to discuss these questions and topics through a group on Facebook. So
not only did you give me the opportunity for rejuvenation you also gave
the ability to continue to connect to these new friends for years to
My family of Madison Square, you have been a wonderful support to me
through the last seven or so years and I appreciate all you have done
for me. Thank you!
I also encourage any other young adults to attend this retreat in the future. It is worth every second and every penny.
Grace and peace, my friends,
