       The one constant of life is the reality of change. Would you like more insight in dealing with
       that reality? The Christian experience provides for certainty and for hope. We do not face
       life’s transitions in the same way that others do. If you need help guiding yourself or your
       family through the adjustments that different generations bring, then this retreat is for you.
       Everyone from Newly-Weds to Seniors will benefit from this weekend.
