LAST CHANCE: THERE IS STILL TIME TO EXPERIENCE A CHRISTIAN ASHRAM!
What is an Ashram? It is a disciplined Christian experience held in a retreat setting for the purpose of deeper spiritual growth which makes God more real in daily living. This provides a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and a move toward the grace and presence of Jesus Christ. On Wednesday, March 21, 2012 Asbury Seminary Florida Dunnam Campus will be sponsoring a half-day Ashram experience at Canterbury Retreat Center. ALL members of the Asbury Seminary Community are invited to participate in this event, which is free of charge. Please make your reservations with Dr. Kandace Brooks for this event. You really don’t want to miss this opportunity!
OASIS DAY RETREAT WITH DR. STEVE HARPER
In cooperation with the Canterbury Retreat Center, Asbury Theological Seminary students are invited to attend a day-long retreat centered on Steve’s book Talking in the Dark on Monday, April 16 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. This may be a time and a theme that would be good for you and a friend (or small group) to experience together, so you can continue the conversation after the Oasis Day itself. Consider
inviting others to come with you.
This retreat is offered to Asbury Seminary students AT NO COST with funding through the Lilly Foundation. If you are interested in attending, please register with Dr. Kandace Brooks. Other members of your church who are not Asbury Seminary students may attend for a cost of $45, and should make reservations with Sue Grosso or 407-365-5571.
