Don Carroll, retreat team member says: “Serving as a busy pastor with a fervent desire to preach the Word and care for the hurting, will inevitably lead us to neglect deepening our own spiritual journeys unless we have a structure in place to keep us grounded in the experience of Christ. - For our ongoing effectiveness as a pastor (and Christian leader), it is precisely the continuous renewal of our own experience of Christ that is going to make us gentle, open, caring, peaceful followers of the Way. Using St. Francis' words we are then able to, 'preach the Gospel always and use words when necessary.' The School of the Spirit is designed to provide a flexible, organic structure for each participant to deepen their own spiritual journey. - The focus of this structure is not on the latest fad about how to stay fit, new psychological coping skills or even theology but on centuries-old practices that will renew our encounter with Christ, grounded in the vitality of a committed community to hold each participant’s journey.” Applications requested by February 1, 2016.
