If we do not learn to be silent before God, we will never completely allow Him to take control of our lives.
Isolated from the hectic pace of life, it's the perfect combination of peace, serenity and scenic beauty.
"It all comes together to make for an incredible experience -- one that I won't miss. I need the time away -- it recharges my batteries and gives me a fresh perspective on life. God never fails to meet me here. I come expecting, and I'm never disappointed."
There is a kind of fatigue happens when we stay up too late and rise too early; when we try to fuel ourselves with coffee and refuse to take time to exercise; when we push unpleasant emotions under the surface and keep going as if nothing were wrong. The result is that we feel separated from God, ourselves and others. It's sometimes called "soul fatigue." One of the biggest challenges with soul fatigue is that it's often hard to read the signs. They can be subtle. Things seem to bother us more than they should; it's harder to resist temptation; our judgement suffers; we have less courage.
Jesus said "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." The Abundant Life Retreat is the perfect antidote for soul fatigue. At ALR, you will experience extended silence, the incredible beauty of Puget Sound, amazing food, great fellowship and genuine worship. The format is simple. We've kept it the same for thirty years. Come and enjoy the simplicity of Fort Flagler and the awesomeness of God's creation. Your soul will thank you.
