One Day Create in Me Retreat: the 2013 Edition

Today I'm in northern Virginia leading a one day creativity retreat with my mom.  You may remember that we've done this before.  For more of an idea of what a one day retreat would look like, see this post on the retreat that we did in 2010.

Our Bible study will be different this year.  Instead of parables, we'll look at the creation stories in Genesis.  What does the story of the creation of the world have to teach us about our own creative lives?

I'll be leading a workshop on spiritual journaling, which I did before, so I'll add a gratitude haiku component, so that those who attended years ago will have something new to try. 

Our schedule will be more compressed this year.  In 2010, we noticed an energy lag after lunch, and we know that lots of people don't really have a full Saturday to give, so we created this schedule:

 8:30-9:00 coffee, treats,

9-930: Get acquainted exercises

9:30-10:30: Bible Study

10:30-10:45: Break (and final drop in station set up if necessary)

10:45-12:15: Creativity Drop In Stations:

Stay at one, visit them all, or anything in between!

12:30-1:30: Lunch

1:30-2:00: Bible Study

2:00: Worship and Blessing of Hands

2:30-4: Drop In Stations could resume or people could leave

I'll let you know how it all turns out.
