Retreat at the "Peaceful Woods"

Retreat at the "Peaceful Woods"

Camp Friedenswald, Michigan (October 13-15, 2017)

Over 40 men and boys met at Camp Friedenswald in Michigan for a Mennonite Men's retreat focused on Making Peace With Conflict.

We considered how conflict is everywhere. Whether at school, work or home, with people we don't like and among our closest friends, we all deal with conflict as a part of life. We learned that as difficult as it may be, conflict creates opportunities for us to grow and form healthy relationships.


We engaged in active exercises and had fun while learning how to make peace with interpersonal conflicts.


Between sessions men enjoyed outdoor walks at Friedenswald—the “Peaceful Woods.”


One group of guys makes it an annual practice to gather at the Friedenswald Mennonite Men retreat to maintain their relationships—a  practice other men may want to consider.

It's good to have a gathering of males young and old share together.
