Meetings & Retreats
Is there a difference between a meeting and a retreat? Our Webster’s Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary (an old but reliable advisor) tells us that a meeting can be “an act or process of coming together: as an assembly for a common purpose”. Retreat is primarily defined as “an act or process of withdrawing esp. from what is difficult, dangerous, or disagreeable” it also is defined as “a place of privacy and safety”. When the word changes slightly to refuge, the definition becomes: “a period of group withdrawal for prayer, meditation, study and instruction under a director”. Our take is that they can be considered one and the same but we favor the more romantic notion in the retreat definition.
