Lamplighter Guild highlights
We had such a profoundly impacting week at the Lamplighter Guild!
The students I was working with started with enacted prayers of actual prayer requests. Then we used sociodrama to weave those real prayers into a fictional drama.

There were many special guests, including Eric Ludy, who challenged us to parkour with joy over the obstacles of life. Dr. Lew Sterrett broke a wild horse and was riding her in just over an hour, during which he was connecting insights from working with wild horses to raising and discipling teens. Profound!
