On January 21 and 22nd WISDOM had its annual retreat at the Pilgrim Center in Green Lake, WI.
For many of us it was the first time and for others it was, let us say, a few more times than one...The retreat enabled many WISDOM affiliates to be able to interact with each other and push our Local, state and national agenda forward. The cold did not deter us from enjoying the scenery but we were there for business purposes and we did get down to business. The opening by a WISDOM veteran and now our new president was phenomenal. Rev Brisco got us to a great start by giving us that sense of urgency that is needed in this line of work. "I have more years behind me then ahead of me" he said, letting us know that he is not about to waste valuable life and I agree! Lets take care of business.
The Friday evening ended nicely with some great conversation and the sharing of anecdotes. On Saturday we continued our day and discussed Gamaliel Tranformational narrative, role of race in our organizations, sacred conversations (exercise) and discussed individually issues our task forces are working on. With renewed energy and commitments in place, we packed our bags and came back ready to work!
