Why I Go To The Adult Retreat.

Well, by now, I’m sure everything I wanted to say has already been said by previous writers. However, I’m glad to add my two cents. I had heard about “2B Retreats” for several years prior to my joining the church in 2015. When I heard you had had Richard Rohr several years back, I knew you invited the best of the best to be the presenters. I love Santa Fe, so any opportunity to be there is an easy “go” for me. So, great speakers and a stunning location were the main draws for me initially. Little did I know that there would be many other wonderful reasons to return, year after year: beautiful gifts of music and poetry shared at each session; meaningful conversations with folks over meals and during breaks that have led to lasting friendships; unique and memorable communion services; lots and lots of laughter, appropriate and otherwise; and opportunities throughout the weekend to soak up the love and wisdom that permeates 2B. Yes, I’ll be there in February. I hope you will be there too!
