In ancient times and in more recent history, yesterday for me, a person in a position of leadership knew when the battle was lost or reinforcement was needed and their only option was to sound the retreat. In our contemporary world the pace of keeping up with all our blessings can sometimes be overwhelming. From time to time a break from the rhythm and responsibilities of everyday life will bring us the soul nourishing that we need for ourselves and subsequently for those we love. Every now and then we each may benefit from a loud and clear sound the retreat!

With that in mind all ladies are invited to a 25 hour retreat, Making All Things New ~ Letting God Transform Us, at Legendary Lodge on Salmon Lake. Our retreat director is Sister Noreen Walter, SCL.
