I may have said this before, but Eagle Eyrie is one of my favorite places to come for a retreat. It's quiet and secluded, tucked into the mountains on the outskirts of Lynchburg, VA. I think we're really blessed to get to come here a couple of times a year.
The trip hasn't been without incident though; April got into a small fender-bender on her way in last night. Everybody was ok, and the only damage to either car consisted of some paint scrapes and a broken turn signal cover on April's car. It was her first time to experience any kind of accident, though, so she was understandably a little shaken up afterward. We also had a student injure himself playing football during our free time today and end up in the ER. I decided to skip the traditional Eagle Eyrie football game this time in favor of Eagle Eyrie basketball - probably a good choice for my aging and increasingly frail body.
We've really enjoyed leading our session on dating in a way that honors God this weekend. It's been fun to talk about our dating history, share some advice from the Bible, and have some good follow-up conversations with students through the session.
