I stopped by Emmaus Ministries this week, to meet some more of the guys and maybe make it easier for them to feel comfortable coming on a retreat with us. They're planning to bring a group next weekend.
Heather and I are excited to be planning a retreat again. We're thinking of focusing on this little story for the weekend:
Jesus sat down opposite the treasury, and watched the multitude putting money into the treasury. Many rich people put in large sums.
And a poor widow came, and put in two copper coins, which make a penny. Jesus called his disciples to him, and said to them, "Truly, I say to you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the treasury."
"For they all contributed out of their abundance; but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, her whole living." (Mk 12.41-44)
