Retreats with Alan & Gem Fadling have provided a sacred space to pull away and step into a facilitated solitude of “unhurried” time to listen and reflect in God’s presence with a blank agenda. I inevitably emerge with a refreshed soul, a gladness of heart, deeper love for the One who invites us to ever deeper intimacy, and a clarity of vision for what I need to do next in providing leadership in my place of vocational calling.
