Theme: Communication and Trust
• Retreat Facilitator: Cecilia Yocum*, Tampa Monthly Meeting
• Gather at 9:00am for coffee and snack. We’ll finish at 4:30pm.
• Location: John Stevens Residence, 9430 SW 93rd Ave.
Join us for a day of relaxation and revitalization as we take time out together as a faith community. We will be led by a gifted peacemaker into a deeper understanding of the importance of communication and trust in a meeting’s vitality. We will enhance our skills through exercises, games, and stretching our minds a bit.
Weather permitting, we will spend part of our time outdoors. Wear, loose comfortable clothes and bring a water bottle. Morning coffee and a light lunch will be served.
Pizza and Poetry: As part of the retreat we will also gather Friday evening, October 28 at the Meetinghouse from 7- 9pm for Pizza and Poetry. Bring a favorite poem to share. Pizza will be provided. Feel free to bring a favorite topping to customize your slice(s). This is a chance to meet Cece if you don’t know her and to visit if you do.
Please RSVP by October 27 to firstname.lastname@example.org or sign up at the Meetinghouse to let us know if you can make one or both of these events. We want to be sure that we have enough food and drink for all.
