Dear Ellen, Thank you again for letting me use A River in the Desert as a guide for the young couples retreat that I facilitated. It saved my life! As you know, I had never conducted a retreat before and would have been totally lost without your excellent, step-by-step guide. I can't imagine tackling a retreat without it! I even followed the suggestions about using music (which was a little too touchy feely sounding but really worked.) If you are going to bake a retreat, you definitely need this recipe! ---Bob Fletcher, Roswell UMC
