The few days at Loyola Hall near Liverpool were a time of real recreation for me. Gathering with a group who are all involved in prayer accompanying and leading retreats is a joy. The Spiritual Exercises, for those of you who have not come across them, are a way of praying and reflecting on our faith journey originating with St. Ignatius of Loyola - hence Loyola Hall!
Together we prayed and shared the experiences of our own journey. Together we learnt more about the work to which we are called. And together by the grace of God we were strengthened for whatever lies ahead.
For me - and Dave - that means a special day in Oxford and then our trip to Cameroon with MRDF. We look forward to visiting partner projects and to meeting with our partner Presbyterian Church.
