Want to Grow Your Faith This Summer? Shenandoah is the Perfect Place!

A friend sent me the information below about Bethany weekends offered by the John and Sofia Cuddeback in Front Royal, VA. 

She has attended several of these weekends and highly recommends them. I can certainly vouch for the beauty of the setting. For more information you can visit the Cuddeback's website linked below:

My wife Sofia and I are happy to share our two offerings this summer of what we call Bethany Weekends.

Part study, part fellowship, part retreat. Experience natural beauty and hospitality in our home as we delve together into an ancient wisdom. Each weekend workshop has a specific theme. Experience the richness of a college level study in a non-threatening, nurturing environment.

July 28-29 Virtue and the Good Life
We know that virtues are important and that we need to cultivate them. We can name a number of them. But the deeper truth about virtue is probably more profound—and challenging and rewarding—than we have yet conceived. We will study and discuss the nature of virtue, the kinds of virtue, how they are cultivated, and the difference it makes, using the greatest thinkers of Western civilization. Lecture notes and recommended reading lists will be provided.

For more details and to apply for a Bethany Weekend go to the 
Bethany Weekend page. 

August 4-5 Friendship and Family RelationshipsThere is no human happiness without true friendship. In order to be intentional about friendship we need to have a clear understanding of what it is, and of the different kinds. With the great masters, both pagan and Christian, we will delve deeply into this most vital of topics. Using basic insights from our study of friendship, we will also examine the special challenge of family relationships and the unique role they play in each of our lives. Lecture notes and recommended reading lists will be provided. Complimentary copy of True Friendship: Where Virtue Becomes Happiness.

Want to be sure to get early announcements of any upcoming Bethany offerings? Go HERE to get on the Bethany Mailing List, used only for special, early notice of the Bethany schedule.

Please note that some financial assistance is available.
We wish all a summer marked by the true joy of the pursuit of wisdom.
