Last month Paul Campbell hosted our Oikosnet North America executive meeting at Spirit in the Desert retreat center near Phoenix [ http://www.spiritinthedesert.org/]. The four of us (from left to right in the photo) – Paul, myself (Mardi Tindal, Director of Five Oaks Centre), Kathy Nash (Treasurer) and Sally Simmel (President) were joined by Jean Richardson (Director of Kirkridge and host of next May’s Oikosnet NA’s annual general meeting and program).
We were inspired by bright desert skies and a shared commitment to this ministry to imagine how we could branch into new means of communication. For one thing, we registered new domain names: retreatcentrenetwork.com (plus .net and .org). Soon this will take you to our website. In the meantime, you can learn more about our nework at: http://www.nardacenters.org/ And you can visit me at Five Oaks: http://www.fiveoaks.on.ca/
