Spiritual retreat

I am at the Palisades retreat center in Seattle attending the five-day Academy for spiritual formation all this week.  It is an ecumenical, semi-monastic community of laity and clergy seeking God. I am hoping to keep my job title a secret. Just want to be Dave, beloved child this week. I would love to have you send me your churches prayer request so that I may lift them in prayer this week.   You can let me know your requests by replying to this blog.  All of our conference mission sites are in my prayers.
