Retreats provide opportunity for renewal, and it is an amazing time to share progress, discuss problems, and plan for the future.
Retreats bring people closer together as brothers and sisters, as well as, fellow workers participating in the greatest work on earth.
This is a great take away lesson for leaders.
The day to day grind of work, shuffling one stack of papers to the next, struggling to resolve problems, and an incredible work schedule will deplete leaders.
Spiritually, we must be renewed in our relationship with God. Such renewal keeps us focused, accountable, and strong in providing help to others.
