Very interesting paralle. Good job.
Very good underlining point, that retreats are not really about us, they are about being refreshed and reminded of his power and purpose through us.
Great! You definitely got my vote on this one...the underlying message in the comparison is too powerful!Thanks for sharing!
Enjoyed this comparison, and the contrasting focus of these two examples of retreat. I liked your final thought: "The battle between the kingdoms of light and darkness continues."
How sad when we forget the reason for families! Good work.
Fascinating! I didn't know about Kephart, but I suppose he was a little like Thoreau ('Walden') or Aldo Leopold ('A Sand County Almanac'). A really good contrast piece on the differences in world views. Thank you for sharing!
Great comparisons. Nice lesson. We can only hope that Kephart made the right decision before his time on earth ended. Only God knows for certain.
I was drawn in by your title and not disappointed. Thanks. Great piece!
A very well presented comparision!
