“Dacha” is one of my favorite words. Have you ever heard it?
It’s Russian. I was introduced to it in the town of Istra, Russia in January 2012, while speaking on the topics of rest and retreat at a conference for Christian camp leaders.
Dacha is a “getaway” cottage—a place of retreat. The use of this word makes Russian faces light up and eyes dance.
What word makes your eyes dance?
What lightens your load?
I pray it might become the word retreat.
Run Hard. Rest Well. is passionate about introducing people to the power and purpose of retreat—large group and personal.
