Penuel Ridge 20th Anniversary Celebration

Approximately 200 people celebrated the 20th anniversary of Penuel Ridge Retreat Center. The scripture theme for the evening was Micah 6:8. "What does the Lord require of you But to do justice, and to love kindness. And to walk humbly with your God." (That was my Mother's favorite verse)

Penuel Ridge for me has been a place of quite retreat, of silence, and of listening for the voice of God. I have been going there since 1985. I have spent many hours wandering the land and praying, or listening to the likes of Douglas Steere and Glenn Hinson.

The highlight of the evening was the speech by Don Beisswenger, the founder of Penuel Ridge. It was his birthday and his reflection was titled, "Nurturing the journey inward strengthening the journey outward."

His reflection on the joys of life and the importance of silence were meaningful. A few pictures are enclosed in the hiplog.
