It was great to see so many BIC-ers at the Fall Retreat this weekend. We were blessed with good weather, despite a storm being forecast, and are now back in Bratislava, smelling of wood-smoke and feeling relaxed, challenged and reinvigorated.
Thanks to Pastor Derek for leading the Saturday programme and Intern Pastor Sharayah for leading our Communion Service on Sunday. Keynotes were learning to see with the eyes of our hearts, and remembering to take the log out of our own eye before trying to remove a speck from someone else's.
We also learned, through many conversations and activities such as the St George Quiz and treasure hunt, Anna's craft project, the campfire, eating together, worshipping and wine tasting, more about how we fit together as a faith community, supporting one another and reaching out to those outside.
See the pictures below for a taste of our weekend.
