Photo Update from the Ranch
The Ranch is spectacular. We have enjoyed the wonderful views and taking advantage of opportunities to hike in the Red Rocks.
There are over 40 youth attending this year. We have enjoyed getting to know them, having conversations together, and gathering in the large group. Yesterday everyone had a chance to make a wax candle, which we then lit while we were talking about our commitments to love ourselves, love one another, and love the world.
Another activity this week involved drawing silhouttes of ourselves and decorating them with words and images that represent who we are. By knowing oursevles better, accepting ourselves for who we truly are, and daring to share our authentic selves with the world, we become free to live and love as children of God. We hung up our artwork to remind us of this.
