Men's Retreat: “Seeing Ourselves through Others’ Eyes 

January 16, 2018

Why would an introvert make the Plymouth Men’s' Retreat one of his first entries on the calendar for roughly 20 years? The simple and surprising answer is people. No matter who attends, I know I will get to know people better, whether they are new to Plymouth or friends I have just had time to nod at lately on Sunday mornings. Then there are all the people I have seen or know a little about, but we never really met or had a conversation.

Could there be any better entry point to getting to know people than 6-8 of us sharing a table and a meal together? If so, it could be the random small group you land in to discuss questions brought up by the weekend's theme. It could be singing or playing games together in the evenings.

Too much time with people for an introvert? Walk around the lake by yourself. Perhaps walk the labyrinth, read a book or lose yourself in thought while watching the fire burn. There is plenty of time for these "activities.”

Regardless of how you decide to spend your free time, please come. I'd like to get to know you better, even if you're an extrovert. –Jon Daniel
