Last weekend was a wonderful opportunity to take time out from ordinary life and focus on prayer. Did you think a retreat was time spent drifting among the flowers and enjoying the birdsong? Think again: this one was like physical training! Except it wasn’t PT, but more like a workout at the gym to train our Spiritual Muscles.
How often do we take the time to set goals in our spiritual lives, to review what God is asking of us and assess where we have let him down? A good retreat will allow you to move forward purposefully, knowing that God has a plan for you.
These retreats are held about every six months, so if anyone would like to join us next year, please let me know. We have separate ones for men and women, just in case you’re wondering.

Finally, I must thank our wonderful hosts, Peter and Delveen, at the Avalon Homestead. The meals were excellent, the rooms beautifully appointed, and our hosts were very accommodating of our request to create a chapel in their conference room!
