Monarchs, Grey Whales, and Us:
Reflections on Migration
Join laity and clergy for a weekend designed to nurture body, mind and spirit. During community time, Rev. Lyda Pierce, joined by several others, will reflect on their personal and family experiences of migration and help us build curiosity about our own experience and that of others. Rev. Paul Jeffrey, through the magic of photo and video, will present reflections on global migrations.
Our setting of Lazy F Camp and the schedule provide space to pursue your own personal interests – from hiking to napping, and everything in between. Beginning with dinner on Friday and ending before lunch on Sunday, we leave rested and energized, having made new friends, deepened existing relationships, and nurtured our spiritual selves.
The Rev. Dr. Lyda Pierce serves as a United Methodist missionary with the General Board of Global Ministries for Hispanic/Latino Ministry Development in our Pacific Northwest Annual Conference. She brings 20 years of pastoral experience in war-torn and hurricane-ravaged countries and extensive teaching experience in both Central America and the U.S. Lyda is the perfect guide to help us reflect on migration – how we view it and how we respond to it.
