Retreat Or Advance?
I'm leaving today for a weekend Ladies' Retreat with ladies from our church. We will be at a wonderful camp and conference center at Rockaway, on the north coast of Oregon. I am looking forward to times of inspiration and encouragement, times of fun and laughter with friends new and old and time away from the normal pace of life. Quite a few years ago a 'retreat' speaker said she believes we should call times like this 'advance' instead of 'retreat'. While we retreat from the daily routines of life we come away better prepared to advance and move forward again. So I'll be gone for a couple of days. When I come back I'll be ready to step back into life at home - ready to go on and advance through life once again.
