Penuel Ridge and Rev. Edwin C. Sanders, II, Senior Servant at Metropolitan Interdenominational Church invite you to a day-long experience centered around Howard Thurman's great contribution to the 20th century. We will delve into the thought of this incredible minister, mystic, philosopher, and preacher-educator.

 

Together, we will gather in the idyllic setting of Penuel Ridge Retreat Center, a 135-acre natural setting designed to be quietly hospitable for the enhancement of personal reflection and spiritual renewal. Listen to excerpts from Howard Thurman's sermons and teachings, delivered in his own voice, participate in a small group interaction, and have ample time for reflection and rejuvenation.

A healthy lunch will be served. Please indicated any dietary restrictions when booking the reservation
