Sep 29, 2017 - Oct 1, 2017Santa Cruz Mountains | Conference Center
Fall is one of the most intriguing seasons at Mount Hermon. As you walk amongst the redwoods, one can almost hear the surrounding environment take a huge breath after a busy summer. How often do we find ourselves either doing or needing the same thing? A deep breath to let one season pass and prepare ourselves for the next season. Plan time this October to come away to Mount Hermon, to take time to reflect on God’s presence in the seasons of our own lives.
