One last thing. Sometimes people say, “I’d love to come to the writing retreat, but I’m not a good writer.”

I get it.  I’m not always a good writer, either.

But if I said to you, “Would you come to this worship retreat with me?”

You wouldn’t say, “I’d love to, but I’m not a good singer.”

We’re not here to be good writers.
We are here to write together,
to learn how writing is a form of worship,
and to draw closer to the One who’s writing our stories with us.

Please.  Come write with me.
