Winter Retreats For Christians
When you think about winter retreats for Christians the last thing that enters your mind is a sex in Christian marriage retreat. Winter retreats for Christians probably bring to your mind scenes of a beauiful tropical Christian resort setting complete with palm trees and turquoise waters lapping against a stunning white sand beach. For Christians living in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa these are the standard kind of winter retreats. However, some deluded people in the northern part of the world who do not want to face up to the fact that they are stuck in a bad place because of family or a job actually talk themselves into liking winter time. They claim they love the "change of seasons" but are not being honest enough to admit that the cold weather is a bummer. A winter retreat for them may involve a ski vacation with Christian friends. The cold weather is not so bad if you can frolic in the snow, ski to your hearts content and relax later in a luxury lodge with a roaring fire and hot cocoa.
There are also Valentine sweetheart retreats for Christians and these take place in the winter time. This writer knows a couple who went on one in February in Minnesota. They traveled four hours to the north from the Twin Cities and experienced fifty six below zero wind chill driving back from the retreat. Nevertheless, their time there was spiritually rewarding since they engaged in prayer, worship, and Bible study while at the rustic northern Minnesota private Christian resort facility they stayed at. Rooms were basic and there was a shower facility in each room. Communal dining was available to all participants. They did make it home alive despite the treacherous and life threatening weather they had to endure as they traveled home. It is no wonder that Christian winter retreats in warmer places are much more popular.
Some luxury cruise companies offer various kinds of Christian winter cruise retreats on luxury ocean going vessels. During winter time in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa Alaskan cruises are on offer but not during the European or North American winter time since a person would have to be nuts to go on one of those during the winter season. However, cruise retreats to various tropical ports find many willing participants. During the winter these cruise operators will offer various kinds of Christian winter cruise retreats that take place in tropical areas of the world. Dr. Kevin Leman who is an internationally known Christian psychologist and award winning author has spoken on a lot of christian cruise retreats and has helped many couples save their marriage or spice up their boring one with helpful advice on communication techniques, conflict resolution problem solving, and ways for christian couples to sexually enhance their marriage.
You do not have to take a cruise to go on a winter retreat in a warm area of the world. There are many fine on land retreat facilities that Christians can use in warm areas of the world. Some that come to mind are retreat facilities in Costa Rica in Central America, facilities on Koh Samui in southeast Asia, Christian retreat centers in Florida where the weather is mostly warm during the winter although cold snaps can happen during the months of December, January, and February especially. After doing some research on the Internet and finding a reputable resort facility, you can suggest to your pastor ahead of time that you would like to see a church retreat take place at the particular facility you have found and he may assign you to be the one who gets people to sign up and commit to going on a retreat there. Pick one at a tropical health spa retreat centre so that healing for the spirit, mind, and body can all be supported.
