The North Georgia Annual Conference will co-host The Upper Room Five Day Academy of Spiritual Formation at Winshape Retreat Center in Rome, Ga., February 8-13, 2015. The Academy of Spiritual Formation is a program of Upper Room Ministries, providing an opportunity for laity and clergy to deepen their relationship with God through a daily rhythm of prayer, worship, learning and reflection. Each day includes teachings by gifted spiritual leaders, periods of silence, along with morning and evening prayer, Eucharist, covenant groups and community time. Time for rest and recreation are also part of each day.
Every 5-day Academy has a different focus. The focus of this year's Academy is on Christian Pilgrimage and the faculty features Dr. Roberta Bondi and Dr. Loyd Allen. Three CEUs are available.
"If you’re looking to renew your faith and relationship with God, make time to be part of the Five Day Academy!," said Rev. Ken Hagler, who is coordinating the North Georgia event. "The Academy is said to be one of the best kept secrets in the church. Don’t let it stay that way!"
