Today, we continue looking at the first of the 7 Foundations of UM Camp and Retreat Ministry: “To provide intentional places apart to encounter God.” • • In our quest to stimulate sacred Sabbath time specifically for clergy and church staff, we created The Resting Place: a “little cabin in the woods” purposefully designed to encourage personal retreat experiences, free of charge. Just give us a call to make a reservation! • • As a wise fella once said, “Sometimes the most spiritual thing you can do is take a nap.” #firmfoundations#sabbath
Every Thursday for the next several months, we will be “educating” our followers on the 7 Foundations of UM Camp and Retreat Ministry, which serve as the guiding principles for how we as a camp seek to embody Christ in all that we do. • • In the month of November, our focus is the 1st foundation: “To provide intentional places apart to encounter God.” The present culture often suggests (or demands) that our lives constantly be busy, loud, and restless. We feel the need to always “be available” to everyone and every need, when often times, God simply calls us to be with our creator — to listen, and to rest. Even Jesus knew this to be a spiritual discipline, as scripture tells us that he “often withdrew to the wilderness and prayed.” (Luke 5:16) • • As we continue to faithfully live out our calling as a camp ministry, may we always be a place that introduces silence and stillness as avenues for communing with God. #firmfoundations#sabbath

Happy Monday friends! Reminding myself of this today-& hoping to encourage someone else with it too. Dreams take time. Empires need firm foundations or they will crumble. Who wants a sparkling castle that’s built on a shaky foundation? Not me! I’m sure you don’t either. So it’s ok if your dream doesn’t happen overnight. As long as you’re working towards it and taking the rights steps everyday to make it happen, that’s all that matters. Set goals, build your dreams from the foundation up! You got this! #bossbabe#holyhustle#holyhustler#firmfoundations#happymonday#motivationmonday#goals ♥️💥🔥😘#Repost @biancaolthoff ・・・ Don’t worry. You have time. Be you, be Yonće!
“Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray.” ~ Rumi You may have noticed that I haven’t been posting about wellbeing work for a while and it now feels like the right time to communicate what’s going on! This year has been full of huge and subtle shifts. Since returning from Bali in February something significant has been healing in me. The completion of this cycle has resulted in profound realisations that have affected me on many levels, one of which being my work. I want to say a massive thank you to everyone I have worked with. Thank you for trusting me to play a part in your journey, it has been amazing to watch you all transform and become your best selves. My focus is changing slightly and I am back in my studies as well as working on some other, bigger projects that I will talk about in time. My wellbeing wisdom will contribute to the core of what I go on to do next. My own journey however has revealed to me that it is not my calling to work one-on-one with personal development. I believed that transformation facilitation was my purpose because it is a role I have naturally fallen into throughout my life. A big lesson is that, just because you are good at something and that you have found yourself repeatedly in that role, doesn’t mean it is your calling. So now, I align with what I really love and I can’t wait to share it with you all soon! I will still be participating in collaborative events and facilitating energy work for beautiful gatherings of souls. Thank you again to everyone I have worked with. It has truly been a blessing. 🌸💜✨🌸💜✨🌸 #norwich#norfolk#wellbeing#completion#realign#freshintentions#firmfoundations#bigvision
