Draw the Circle Wide

"It may seem odd to tell you this, but I was never a “conferee,” staff member or dean at Silver Lake! ...I continue to be drawn into the circle we know as Silver Lake Camp and Retreat Center and, also, continue to fall in love with this place and the people who compose the big family circle."

Rev. Paul Nesbit, Silver Lake Board Member, reflects on our upcoming events and the variety of ways to "draw the circle wide” as we seek to welcome new folks to the circle that is Silver Lake Camp Retreat Center. Read the full post here.
