Retreat of the Soul - with Virginia Contributor


Retreat of the Soul journals the spiritual pilgrimage  that parallels a  minister’s yearly retreat, for 25 years now, to the Abbey of Gethsemani near Bardstown, Kentucky.  The writing expands the Apostle Paul’s encouragement to “pray without ceasing” as the core of the contemplative life.   Discover how the disciplines of silence, meditation, ritual and nature, set the table for personal communion with Christ.  A biblical practicality that encourages the awareness of Christ’s presence awaits the longing soul.  Spiritual renewal in worship  and a deeper appreciation for the cross of Christ will encourage the weary pilgrim.  Be still and hear Christ knocking at your door.  Christ invites everyone to a Retreat of the Soul.   This book is ideal for one’s personal spiritual journey, and study questions ideal for small group discussion.

One of our own Virginians, Pastor Cliff Bowman of Stevens Church of God, is one of seven pastors that contributed to the contents of the book. He wrote from a Pentecostal perspective on the subject.

Retreat of the Soul will be available soon on Amazon for 10.99.
