Give yourself or someone you love a gift of spiritual renewal, peace and blessing this Christmas. After the hectic holidays and start of a new year everyone wants some peace and needs spiritual renewal. In the winter cold there’s nothing so warm as a wonderful Friday night-Saturday retreat called Winter Soulstice, held at St. Mark’s UMC in Raleigh, February 7-8, 2014. In this 24 hour retreat you’ll be inspired by those early Christians who went into the desert to grow deeper in their relationship with Christ as Dr. Roberta Bondi brings them to life for you. Roberta is a distinguished scholar, church historian, author and retreat leader will be the featured presenter speaking on the subject: “Monastic Spirituality: Learning Love, Prayer and Theology from the Desert Fathers and Mothers.”
