Report: Titusville Retreat 2015
On Thursday, November 5, Odyssey in Christ hosted its fifth annual 72-hour Experiencing the Trinity retreat at St. Stephen Christian Retreat and Conference Center in Titusville, Florida. GCI members from Florida, Indiana, Minnesota, Texas and Wisconsin attended in person, along with two members from Mississippi who joined the retreat online.
Led by Odyssey in Christ staff members Larry Hinkle (OIC director), Charles Fleming, Carmen Fleming and Gracie Johnson, the participants were led through a variety of teaching sessions and spiritual exercises for the purpose of creating an environment for experiencing the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in close and personal ways.
From an extended time of silence, to meditative prayer and praise, to creative expressions in community and transforming prayer, all of the participants came away, as Carolyn Lane said, “with valuable tools for deepening our daily walk with the Father, Son and Spirit. We truly experienced being in the presence of God in a very intimate, tangible way, which left us thirsting for more. I can’t recommend this retreat enough!” In the words of Tom Fallon, “we were visited and dwelt in by the very real presence of the Holy Spirit.” And, John Novick commented that “this retreat was a magnificent 72-hour journey with God that can change one’s life forever.”
