Description

FCCPA 8th Annual Men’s Retreat February 3-5, 2017:

The Book of Job: Suffering, Resilience, Transcendence and Joy

The Book of Job is a compelling ancient investigation into the mysteries of divine justice. Why do bad things happen to good people? Why would a good God permit the manifestation of evil? The themes of suffering and resilience will be explored from both a theological and psychological perspective. All this along with our usual fireside worship, fun and fellowship – including poker, golfing, hiking, biking, meals, games, music and more!

Our retreat leaders will be David Howell, Todd Daly and Adam Phillips. The retreat will be held at the Asilomar Conference Grounds in Pacific Grove, right next to the city of Monterey. It will begin on Friday, February 3rd, 2017 at 7PM and end on Sunday, February 5th, 2017 at 12PM. We will be in the same great buildings as last year, “Surf and Sand.” The cost for the weekend is $355 for a shared quad room or $635 for a private single room.

Best,

Todd, Dave & Adam
