Many men, women, and youth are finding Christian retreat centers as the most enjoyable and enriching places to spend time getting away from it all.  Ironically, many say they needed to step out of life to actually find more life!

Life has a way of draining all of us.  We come home tired but we usually don’t mean we are physically tired.  What so many mean when they say “I’m tired” is that they feel drained, life feels kind of purposeless and all the frenzied activities of life have lost their meaning.  They are with people, communicating with people, and around people, but they aren’t really connecting with people in ways that matter.  Emails, texting, polite small talk and just trying to get things done don’t bring the relational richness all of us need.

But, pulling out of our regular busyness and spending a long weekend or even a week at a Christian retreat center, helps us unwind, re-focus our lives, and draw near to others in ways life usually doesn’t allow.  A Christian retreat center creates the time and space we need to find purpose again, strengthen the friendships we treasure and maybe even build new friendships with people that share some of our beliefs, values and dreams for life.

And Christian retreat centers can be really fun, and even adventurous, too.  Long hikes in the woods, mountain biking, canoeing, rock climbing, and other physical sports are offered by many Christian retreat centers.  Activities are age-appropriate, and the planned activities for youth, and even adults, are supervised by trained staff, so everyone has a good time.

Men’s groups, women’s groups and many youth groups plan annual events at Christian retreat centers, so find one that fits your needs, is close to home or in an area you would love to visit, and spend a few days finding more life by stepping out of life.

Mark Dubler is the Executive Director of Otyokwah Camp & Retreat Center and a Christian Retreat Center expert. Check out our great discounts for first-time groups at Camp Otyokwah.

Faith-Based Education at a Christian Boarding School

Sending your child away to a Christian boarding school is a big decision — one that shouldn’t be entered into lightly. You have to do a lot of research to find an institution that reflects your moral, religious, and educational values, while preparing your child for the future. In order to ensure this happens, you have to set up interviews and campus tours for each Christian boarding school you’re considering.

Overcoming Setbacks

When we set out to achieve a goal or goals, there are usually those unforeseen factors that have been aptly named contingencies. They can come when we least expect them and they can also come at times in torrents…. one after the other, one after the other and one after the other. They have a way of destabilizing one and if care is not taken, can make one give up on his or her plans.

Christian are you more of a listening or a speaker?

I love listening to people tell me their testimony. Or I love it when someone comes over and ask me can we talk. And this is something that happens all the time. I have learned through people, that if you are a ear, sometimes this is all they want. A shoulder to lean on and a ear to speak too.

Obviously this question doesn’t apply if you are Christian, though please feel free to contribute if you want to.

I’m an atheist and sometimes it annoys me when I read the newspaper or see on TV an article about I don’t know, a child murder for example. And in the report it says “Jane Doe, who was a strict Catholic and attended church every week with her family…” I feel like shouting at the screen “SO WHAT??? Does that mean her life is worth more than mine? Just because of her religion?” it saddens me because although I may not believe in a God, I live my life being the best person I can be and value my life to be equal to that of a Christian.
Another example would be the Columbine Massacre, where 12 students and a teacher were shot dead by 2 fellow pupils. There was huge media attention surrounding the incident and I’m sure anyone who remembers the event or has read/learned about it will have heard the stories of Rachel Scott, Cassie Bernall and Daniel Rohrbough, three devoutly Christian students who were murdered in the massacre. But can anyone remember the names of the other people who died? I asked my family and friends and they couldn’t remember the names of any of the other children, probably because they hadn’t had anywhere near as much media attention.

What are your thoughts on this?
Amelie: Actually I live in England, I’ve observed the same thing happening here as well but not so strongly – probably because the UK in general is a much less religious nation than the US.

Christian is in Detroit, Michigan for tonight’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view. I have not heard if there are plans to use him at the event but he is in town and will be at the show.

will he wind up costing jeff the title? or be a surprise entrant? or perhaps play another role?
