Disconnect to Reconnect: Spring Retreats
As a Christian church community, our season of Lent has just begun. A period of study and reflection, we often observe this period by ceasing something as a reflection on sacrifice. Others practice by taking on a spiritual habit to encourage examination. I’ve been walking around Aldersgate considering how I want to observe Lent this year. On my walks, God has been using the natural world to remind me that after a time of fallowness, new growth comes.
What I’m trying to say is Spring is on the way! Finally. After a winter that included lots and lots of wet, gray days, we are finally seeing new green growth on trees. The green leaves of daffodils are stretching skyward. Some crocuses are even opening their face to the sun.
Spring is a gorgeous time at Aldersgate. It is a powerful place where God’s creation can deepen our understanding of our faith. Book your own spring retreat today. We are happy to host youth, study groups, confirmation classes, and all others.
