“Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where He prayed.”
Clergy are dedicated to tending to the spiritual lives of others, but who cares for us when our own spiritual lives begin to run dry?
You are invited to come away to a quiet place and spend some quality time in prayer, personal growth and renewal.
...Spend personal prayer time alone with God...
...develop a deeper awareness of the Holy Spirit in your life...
...re-focus on your original call to ministry...
This 2 part program is designed by clergy for clergy, and has been approved by the Pen-Del Conference for 4 CEU’s.
“This was an opportunity to discover the depth of my own spirituality. I learned some truths that I had never addressed before. It was a “safe” environment - clergy with clergy, and I look forward to incorporating what I have learned into my present situation.”
About the Facilitator
Rev. Dr. Benita Harris is an ordained elder in United Methodist Church and has a special place in her heart for people, ministry, retreat ministry, spiritual development and local and global missions. These passions were formed, affirmed and supported by her family. Her parent’s growth in the faith was a powerful witness in her formative years and her sister’s sacrificial giving and dedication to the faith was a model in her adult years. Faith and family are both precious to her. One of her favorite quotes is from C.S. Lewis.
I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen; not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.
Benita has Masters in Nursing from Salisbury University, a PhD in Human Development from The University of Maryland, an M.Div. From Palmer and a Masters in Spiritual Formation and Spiritual Direction from Richmont Graduate University.
