Fall Retreat Forever

What if everyday was Fall Retreat?  That is, what if everday we played games together, sung praises to the Lord, studied the Bible and prayed together, had a bonfire, etc.?  No doubt we would enjoy this for the first few days — even first week!  We might even find that we feel closer to the Lord during this special excursion.  But I imagine that eventually we would revert back to our same selves — struggling with the same issues and sins.

Learning to be faithful in the ho-hum everyday reality of life is critical to our perseverence in the faith.  Thankfully we worship One who understands the ho-hum everyday reality of life because He has fully entered into this same reality!

Thanks to everyone who made Fall Retreat a good retreat to recharge so that we can reenter the world!
