PRE-RETREAT QUESTIONNAIRE and RESOURCES
Please complete this online questionnaire by the end of November. All responses will be kept confidential.
“Before you tell your life what you intend to do with it, listen for what it intends to do with you. Before you tell your life what truths and values you have decided to live up to, let your life tell you what truths you embody, what values you represent.”
Parker J. Palmer
