We live in a polarized nation.
Elections and decisions made this year will have an impact on generations to come.  For those who seek peace and long for a better world for all people and for our planet, what are we to do?  On President's Day, we invite you to join us for a unique retreat as we create a safe space to explore the issues which divide us as a nation and offer time and space for silence, reflection, prayer, and conversation. 
$70 for the Day Apart Retreat.  However, we invite you to extend your time at the Ridge with an overnight retreat.  Stay Monday night and join Mike Clark’s Day Apart retreat on Tuesday,  February 18th as he asks the question,  “How would Jeremiah vote?" and invites us to consider how we are making decisions during this election year. Come for both Monday and Tuesday Day Apart retreats, enjoy Monday dinner, your overnight stay in a private room and breakfast on Tuesday.  Cost: $199 per person
