Denise commented on an earlier entry today:
- just stumbled across your blog....i live in marietta, ga and haven't heard of this little retreat your attending. i reckon that's ok, perhaps the cleansing streams folk didn't have to check with me to plan a retreat. hope all goes well for you!
Anyway, that opens up a neat segue to make a plug for Cleansing Streams. The retreat this weekend is the culmination of four months of videos and personal study & reflection & conviction. We're meeting at Mt Paran North Church of God in Marietta, GA - the site for the regional retreat. Basically, the cleansing aspect comes from the ministry of Jack Hayford, seeking to provide a balance in "deliverance ministry" (which often has a bad name from abusiveness and ineffectiveness) with the Bible's call to walk in wholeness and holiness. We all bring our baggage to the table, and this is an outlet to deal and chuck.
About six of us are going - not as big a group as the 19 who went with me in the spring, but it's been a good season of cleansing for the ones who are pressing through in this.
