We’re planning a week of fun and faithful conversation, games and exploration! The theme for the week is “Bodies Are Beautiful!” The messages we get from the world tell us that we should always be trying to change our bodies and ourselves. This summer, we’re practicing a Holy No by being totally counter-cultural. We’ll be learning how to appreciate, love and care for our bodies at every shape, size an ability. We’ll be practicing mindfulness to save ourselves from stress and we’ll dance and sing our praise to God for the gift of being human and alive. We’ll talk about what it means to honor one another and ourselves. We’ll play games together that have us moving, dancing, painting, decorating and loving these beautiful gifts we’ve been given to live in! Get ready for a week of fun in a supportive and loving community!
