I’m not dropping hints to the Bricks. Jamie and I were already able to go to Cedarly. But, if you are looking for a Christmas present that will both bless your pastor and church (see Motivation for Caring for Your Pastor), then consider giving the Christmas present of a retreat at Cedarly. It is a bargain.
Cedarly is a retreat center that focuses on spiritual renewal for pastors and their spouses. Pastors (and spouses if they are married) arrive on Sunday and stay until Friday morning. Each participant maps out how he or she will pursue spiritual renewal during the week.
Jamie and I have been to Cedarly three times. And, each time we have been renewed. The facilities are beautiful. The food is excellent. And, the focus is truly on spiritual renewal.
You learn a lot more from the below video. This would make a wonderful Christmas present for your pastor.
