If you are like me, your Fall schedule hasn’t turned out the way that you were hoping. The time you planned to take to spend sitting at the feet of Jesus has been eaten away with the day-to-day pressures of life. Perhaps you have even had an unexpected event shatter your peace and change nearly every aspect of your life. We would encourage you to come away to one of the two Fall Reflective Retreats at Mount Hermon. Here you will arrive to a place that has been prepared for you to rest, listen to the Lord’s voice in your life, be fed spiritually and physically and re-focus before the rest of the year. The two weekends, Nov 7-9 and Nov 12-14, are identical in program and theme. You can even plan to come a day early, get settled in your room and get both physically and spiritually prepared for the weekend. Meals will be provided for the early arrivals, but the program will not begin until Friday evening.
This year we have a number of cabins in our housing allotment. Choosing a cabin option gives you your own bedroom with a shared living area and bath. You can request to share the cabin with friends, or be placed with someone you don’t know. Single occupany is still available in the hotel rooms, but for an additional charge.
The theme for both weekends is the Parable of the Prodigal. Each retreat session will explore the characters in the story in an inter-active way. There will also be a new prayer labyrinth also set to the theme. I suspect that it will be hard to get away, to commit the time and resources. Can you really afford not to? Mount Hermon would like to remind you that camperships are always available, so don’t let fiances get in your way of coming.
Hope to see you soon!
