pray for the staff of ys this tuesday, please. the office will be closed, and the whole staff will be at mission san luis rey for a day-long spiritual retreat. this will be the fourth or fifth year we’ve done this — it’s always been fantastic. the mission is one of the original california missions, a beautiful and serene place. we usually spend parts of the day in silence and parts in other kinds of reflection. this year, mark yaconelli is coming down to lead the day, which will be a very cool treat for our staff.
unfortunately, i’ll be on my own retreat on the other side of the world, and won’t be with the ys staff.
