“O Beauty Ever Ancient,” a Video From the New Year’s Retreat

At our New Year’s retreat, we did a lot of group work with doors – each person chose an image of a doorway or gate or threshold as they arrived the first evening. This item helped break people into “teams” (small groups), and had a quote about thresholds or journeys on the back. I wanted to find a way to share this with others, and to post the song “O Beauty Ever Ancient” by the Saint Louis Jesuits, which was used as part of a chapel service.

As I watch this again, I can’t help but think of each of the participants at the retreat, and know that each photo is in one of their hands now. I hope that they are all happy and well and that their journey is blessed as they continue on into the new year.
