Every Fall and Spring men from UU churches across Texas gather for a weekend retreat at UBarU Camp & Retreat Center near Kerrville (ubaru.org). Come and enjoy fellowship in the Texas Hill Country. Rest, relax, enjoy delicious meals and use the time as a break from your normal routines and schedules. The retreat will be facilitated by Rev. Mark Skrabacz. Mark will guide us in a thematic inquiry and processes of introspection to deepen our life’s path and build community among our fellow UU men.
We will begin gathering Friday afternoon to share an evening meal and end mid-morning Sunday. There is plenty of sleeping room in the new Dwight & Marie Brown Center; or, if you prefer, bring a tent and enjoy a night under the stars. The only thing you will need to bring are your own towel, sheets & blanket (or sleeping bag), and pillow, as well as any snacks and libations you would enjoy. Activities may include poker playing, volunteer projects, music, hiking around UBarU's beautiful rugged 142 acres, and fellowship. As anyone who has attended one of these retreats during the past decade will tell you, the event offers a pleasant, relaxing time to unwind and just get away for a couple of days while enjoying fellowship with other UU men. If you can’t make it for two nights you are welcome for one, or even for a day trip (contact Texanmkk17@aol.com for rates). We encourage participation from all UU men across Texas. Please spread the word!
