Report: St. Louis Retreat 2016
Below you'll find testimonials from Odyssey in Christ's Experiencing the Trinity Retreat held this year in St. Louis, Missouri from June 2-5:
What a wonderful, encouraging, uplifting, and deeply meaningful time with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit!
I would recommend this retreat experience because it encourages us to have that one relationship with Jesus—to learn how to imitate him, with the help of his Spirit as we live moment to moment.
OIC is a blessing to our denomination and [I] will encourage participation.
The most important thing I experienced during the retreat was a confirmation that I am on the right track and drawing closer to my God and especially enjoying meeting new people and getting to know them so well and so quickly – we have the close relationship of being brothers and sisters in Christ. What a joy!
It’s so wonderful getting close to the Trinity. To affirm that He loves us so much and He has created us to participate with Him in His work and Life!
I learned how to listen to and invite the Spirit to speak to me. My personal experience brought an emotional closeness to the Lord that all my head knowledge never gave me.
If you are looking for a close, personal encounter with God, there’s no better environment! Peace, knowledge and fellowship!
The retreat was a such a pleasant time for us, both as a couple and individually. We experienced renewal and affirmation of what God is doing in our lives. As John Ortberg says in You Have a Soul, "The soul's infinite capacity to desire is the mirror image of God's infinite capacity to give." During the retreat, the practices enabled me to open my soul to God's infinite capacity to give. Since then, I keep noticing my soul's infinite capacity to desire.
