Fall Men's Retreat
October 14-15, 2016 at Bonclarken Conference Center, Flat Rock, NC
Our speaker for the 2016 Men's Retreat is Dr. Mike Milton. He will be leading us in a study entitled, "Renewing Your Passion for Christ: Our Hope in the Ruins from the Pastoral Epistles."
Using the Pastoral Epistles, with spiritual insights on the struggle for Christian faithfulness in cultural upheaval from literary lights such as John Donne, Walker Percy, and Flannery O’Connor, as well as theological and philosophical insights of Charles Taylor, Miroslav Volf, Charles Taylor, and Jürgen Habermas, we will seek to enter the world of Timothy in Ephesus, drawing forth the eternal truths from St. Paul’s instructions, and apply them to our own lives as men in the Secular Age today. Each session will include original folk music drawn from Dr. Milton’s recordings. With his Martin D-35 guitar and harmonica, Milton seeks to explore the concepts of making sense of God’s grace in the midst of a broken humanity.
Dr. Mike Milton (Ph.D., University of Wales, Lampeter), an ordained minister and long-time pastor in the Presbyterian Church in America served as the fourth chancellor and chief executive officer of Reformed Theological Seminary. Prior to his service as chancellor of RTS, he was the president of RTS/Charlotte. Dr. Milton previously served as the senior pastor of the historic First Presbyterian Church in Chattanooga, TN.
