Retreat to Move Foward

     Prior to the start of each semester, the staff attend a retreat in preparation for the coming term. This February's retreat we welcomed back Barbara Christy Filner, Class of '58, who led four sessions on "Living in Community: Constructive Conflict Management". Sent by the Class of '58, Ms. Filner and her expertise will help us to strengthen our community as a model for our students. Her sessions dove-tailed well with the sessions led by C.B. Samuel, Director of the Evangelical Fellowship of India's Commission on Relief. He spoke on "Defining Mission in the 21st Century", challenging us personally and institutionally to live and work in such a way as to produce graduates who are rooted in righteousness and justice. Marti Vroon Reinstra, also Class of `58, led the closing communion service.

Back to the top.
