Hoosier Musings on the Road to Emmaus

Senior retreat

Last Saturday the Seabury graduating class and their spouses/significant others (or most of us, anyway) gathered at a local Episcopal church, on a day-long retreat: a time, as we wind down our seminary career, to both look back on the experience of the last three years, and to look forward to what's happening next. During both morning and afternoon sessions, were led in scripture meditations by our newly installed dean. Following those, we broke into two groups for discussion: students chatting with the dean, S/SO's with his wife.

In our spare time, we ate (goodness, can seminarians eat!! "Never turn down free food" is an ingrained ethic) and played this game that Dave brought with him. Whether it was truly that good a game, or whether it was simply the company, I'm not sure; but it was fun.

Finished the day with Eucharist, and Chinese food ordered in for dinner. It came complete with fortune cookies, of course, and I don't care that they are not part of authentic Asian cuisine; I still find them entertaining-- especially when reading them in the silly fashion we used.

All in all, it was a decent day. I'm glad I went.
