About the Conference:
Discouragement is something we all face from time to time as we suffer the effects of a bad economy, or bad health, or a failed business, or a rebellious child, or a troubled marriage, or being just plain weary. Sometimes we are discouraged not by something that has happened to us or to someone we love, but by something that we have done—or failed to do—some habitual sin, some weakness of character, some disappointing behavior or attitude we have seen in ourselves.
The apostle Paul knew the joy of being encouraged by other believers as well as the privilege of encouraging others. He wrote to his friend and fellow worker, Philemon, “Your love has given me great joy and encouragement, because you, brother, have refreshed the hearts of the saints” (Philemon 7). This retreat is about encouragement to refresh hearts, so that we might learn about the joys and means of giving and receiving that kind of encouragement with its source in the gospel of Jesus Christ.
