2020 Vision in the New Year
Mercy Home’s main approach to spiritual development is inclusivity, according to Manager of Spiritual Development Marc Velasquez. He explains to our kids that spirituality is about connection—whatever connects you to other people, connects you to the world, and makes you want to be a better person. And while many people find that in religion and prayer, others may find it in places like nature. Our kids are given a safe place to explore their spirituality and connect with it in whatever way they feel comfortable doing so.
Spiritual retreats like this one are a big part of both Marc’s job and our kids’ time at Mercy Home. Marc said it’s a time when he gets to be creative, try new things, and give our kids new opportunities.
“I’ve gotten to do a lot of really cool things with [our retreats],” he said.
