One tenet of our membership covenant is:

Uphold the standard of a Christ-honoring environment

On one of our previous retreats we focussed on this tenet. As an exercise we came up with haikus to capture the meaning of it.

Here are few of them:

With entertainment
Proactivity is key
Think through your choices

– Margie Trevillyan

An afternoon smile
Expels many a sad heart
And life is revived

– Sam Poat

Together we live
Masters of kindness we hold
Virtues from of old

– Jared Barton

Holding each other
Through joy, sorrow, grief, and pain
The embrace of God

– Jon Trevillyan

Please, thank you, sorry
melodies that lift each one
lightening the load

– Betty Harding
