Progress: We have tentatively established August 2-5 as the dates for the 2018 national/summer retreat! This is the big one, and if you can make one retreat this year, try to make this one. You will not regret it. Go ahead and pencil these dates in on your calendar if you don't already have plans you can't get out of. Steps ahead: We are working on nailing down a location, and that's why I said "tentatively" on the dates. Our intention is to find a suitable location for that weekend, but there is always a possibility that we will have problems finding a place that really meets our needs on the dates we want. Please pray that God would direct our research to the place he wants us to use. Further bulletins as events warrant.
