Recently, the staff of St. George’s Episcopal Church went up to Mt. Calvary Retreat Center in Santa Barbara for an all too short retreat;the first this current staff has had. It was more a “get to know you” retreat which focused on our personal journey from childhood to our adult identities. One of the exercises was to create a haiku of our teen years. I thought I would share the one I wrote:

More than I will know

Less than I appear to be

For I am searching

the end.
