I say all this because the first ever Intermissionary Retreat begins in Chamonix, France ten days from now. Follow the fun on Insta!
We are creating a space where those deep river, right-brain moments can occur; where the survival mind can chill, allowing the big fish to rise and hit our lines. Shocking the filament all the way to our hands. I need this in my life. I need mountains and rivers to help me be quiet because, in my experience, God simply won't compete with the noise in my life. The problem is: I'm not always in the mountains. That's why I'm getting serious about yoga and meditation.
I spend a lot of time falling down rabbit holes on the internet, so you don't have to. The upside is all the cool stuff I find. So I've invented The Firegirl Five to share cool things with you. Here are five from last week.
As a company, Girl Catch Fire believes that the freedom and power of the resurrected Christ is alive on the inside of us and you; so we behave accordingly, doing awesome and unexpected things everywhere we go.
That now includes live music at Red Rocks in September with Intermissionary Retreats.
You might not understand why a trip to Walmart makes your missionary a little sick. You probably won't understand why they are crying so much, especially since they are FINALLY reunited with their family and friends. It might confuse you when they stop mid-sentence and quit trying to explain something.
Hang in there with them. Help them by curiously and gently asking things like:
What's upsetting about that for you?
How did that make you feel?
That seems super important to you. Can you help me understand why?
