Today I write from the Dunn Brothers in Hudson Wisconsin. I am attending an annual mens retreat with my home church Mt. Calvary Lutheran. I snuck away for a bit to connect to the internet and make this post. For the past seven years we have traveled to the YMCA Camp St. Croix for a couple of days of rest, music and a whole lotta nothin if you want. But we also spend time consciously stopping and focusing on stopping. As I’ve written before, it is often critical to a healthy spirit to stop the chaos of our spirits and defibrillate our spirits enabling them to regain their healthy natural rhythm. I’m probably not stopping as I should since I’m sneaking of to make this post, but writing and sharing is one of the ways I personally defibrillate.
It is a ritual that I enjoy, often with old friends and often with new friends. As I often say in my invocations, “Fellowship is nourishment for our souls”. Here’s to a weekend of healthy spiritual diet and exercise!
