Our synod's retreat center has a full-time chef - and he is worth every penny they pay him! I couldn't eat a lot of the things he served, so he went out of his way (and I didn't ask!) to make me something that I could eat. Totally awesome!
Lots of talking, lots of connecting - it was good. Even better than last year - and last year was great!
Now, to try and keep the connection going....:grin:
