What is a faith retreat? What’s the fruit of getting away to grow in faith? How can these warm summer months be an opportunity to create an opportunity for my kids to encounter God in a new way? I’d like to organize a mini faith-fostering event for my family, any ideas? How can I find great retreat opportunities for kids, teens and families? What happens on a silent retreat? How can I use nature as a tool to foster a deeper connection to Christ? Why is it important to retreat?
Now in my lifetime, I would love to do more of a silent retreat with some great reading, reflection and prayer. But that would sound awful to me as a teenager! –Kari
A retreat gives permission for kids to express enthusiasm for the faith, it’s almost awkward not to! That’s positive peer pressure. -Tom
