  • Abode Village View – Month of December

    As we enter December, we have moved into the reflection and planning cycle that our slow(er) season affords us. Quietly productive is the term that comes to mind. It has been a year of change.

    We are settling into fall at the Abode. The busy season is largely behind us and as we prepare for winter’s lull, we are busy reflecting, analyzing, organizing, planning, and preparing for 2018. Before too long will come spring, and we’ll start our annual rhythms afresh. In a few weeks, we will be giving thanks, and hosting our annual Thanksgiving dinner in the Razzaq dining room....

  • Abode Village View – Week of 10/30

    We have just concluded our final Village Visit of the year, and together enjoyed a late fall weekend of kinship, work, food, and sharing of individual and collective stories. In other words, community. Over the past two weeks, many hands and hearts have come together at Sherdyl Manzil to begin the process of converting that space into a community café....
