I’ve mentioned before how myself and the staff are scheduling time each week, month, quarter and year to get away and just spend time focusing and listening to what God might be saying. Well, my first quarterly just snuck up on me. Sadly, I’m just not used to scheduling this time. I’ve got it scheduled for next Monday through Wednesday. Only problem is, I don’t have a place to go yet. So, maybe you can help.
I’m looking for suggestions on a place to go. If it’s free (like you own it or know who does) that’d be great but I’m expecting to pay and consider it an investment in me and the church. Here’s what would put me at ease and the type of place I’d like to be. I’m not a beach person really, but would enjoy a rustic, log cabin like secluded spot with a fireplace and trail, river or nature-ish stuff. As long as it has a bed, electricity and a way to cook that’d be fine – that means a 400 square foot shack would be just as good if not better than a 4000 square foot beautiful home. The more secluded and quiet the better because I’m easily distracted and that’s why a hotel or retreat center with bunches of other people around isn’t at the top of the list. No need for cable, internet or any of that. Closer is better too, but I’d drive 4 hours or so if I needed.
So, any suggestions?
