Everyone - from toddlers to adults - picked the name of another retreat participant. The pairs were asked to sit together, talk and make a list of all the things they could come up with that they had in common. The names were picked at random so we had young people with young people, adults matched with young people, and adults matched with other adults. What resulted were great conversations between folks who may not have ever previously gotten to know each before. The pairs were wonderful at listening and learning about each other. Below are a few of the lists that were made during the activity.
|Calvin (age 9) and Julie (Adult)|
|Megan and Mary (adults)|
|Dex (age 5) and Savanna (age 7)|
|John (adult) and Dex (age 5)|
|Beatrice (age 6) and Olena (adults)|
|Wendy (adult) and Marina (age 7)|
|Sam (age 6) and Eve (age 7)|
|Malachi (age 6) and Jenny (adult)|
Stay tuned for more in a future post!
