Over the 5 day ‘long weekend’ holiday in May, we held a ‘Soul Shelter’ Retreat, where members of WVM’s “Families in Crisis” program had a chance to get some respite in the peaceful town of Lwówek Śląski, in South Poland. We were hosted at the Elim Christian Center, a lovely renovated 16th century palace, and the main topics of the key discussions were changing the way we look at life’s problems and challenges. We also organized a barbecue on the grounds, and on the last evening celebrated with a special dinner in a local restaurant.

Below are a few pictures and some reflections from retreat participants.
