      Our speakers are Steve and Sally Breedlove. Steve is rector at All Saints Church in Chapel Hill, and Sally is an author and speaker. They’re great. I’m so excited to get to spend the weekend with them!

    I recently read one of their books “The Shame Exchange: Trading Shame for God’s Mercy and Freedom” Steve & Sally Breedlove and Ralph & Jennifer Ennis, NavPress, 2009 which I can WARMLY recommend. I am also so excited about hearing them speak…. It’s going to be an EXCELLENT weekend 🙂

    There is so much to love about our church family–Yah, Fall Treat x3! One of them is how excited we are to be with each other. BUT what has continued to blow me away for 3 years is how we take great pleasure in naming and praising and calling out the good, the hard work and contributions of each other.

    As a benchmark, I would trace my awareness of this RAC trait back to the first round of small group study where we discussed what it might look like to be a church who was marked by Romans 12:10 behavior. Being devoted to each other and outdoing each other in showing honor. It is nigh on contagious! It makes me giddy to recount how the Holy Spirit has knitted our hearts together.

    Speaking of shout outs (and not to derail retreat discussions), Becky when are we gonna have that knitting night? I’ll host!
