Grade 7 Retreat Reflection
A week has passed when I followed the retreat activity of grade 7 Dian Harapan Manado. I am so blessed and joy by following the retreat activity. I had many experiences, enjoyed every moment by getting to know God deeper and share wonderful moments with new friends. The theme of grade 7 retreat is “My Relationship”, which at first I thought it was about a relationship between different genders. However, as I followed every sessions, I realized the meaning of a real relationship, which is our personal relationship with our Father in Heaven.
The precious lesson I got from this retreat activity is having a chance to realize God’s love towards me through my family and friends. I had reflected that every parents are God’s representative in this earth, therefore, I must respect, appreciate every decision my parents made, cheris and loving them. God teaches all men to love each other because He is a loving God. On the other side, I had reflected the differences that exist through tribe, gender, religion, race and other differences, but it is not an excuse for me to not care and love one another. God created man in his own image, in the image of God created through His perception.
My relationship goal is loving God and others.
