Last weekend I journeyed upstate for a final fall retreat with my college ministry, RUF City Campus Ministry (CCM). It was a restful weekend defined by meeting new friends, seeing old ones, and taking refuge in a beautiful, quiet space away from the city. It was so good. I cannot say much else about it without being redundant, so here are some moments from the retreat that I managed to capture on my trusty iPhone.
I recommend listening to this wee little playlist I put together while scrolling through the photos. It sums up the emotions I felt this weekend. Nostalgia. That’s it. I felt nostalgic the entire weekend. Meeting the new students and seeing people connect and become friends took me back to my first year of school when I was experiencing the same things. I could not help but see all the budding friendships and memories awaiting the underclassmen. I am so encouraged and excited for the future generations of CCM. Without further ado, here are the photos.
In CCM, I’ve found my second family and spiritual home. I have forged the strongest ties with people here. They’ve seen me through my highest and lowest points, and I am so grateful for them.
Have a restful day/night, y’all.
p.s. I took a disposable camera along with me on retreat, so stay tuned for when I develop those gems.
