Pastor retreats may not be spoken about much, but any of your pastor friends that you do talk to will tell you that they are a lifesaver. The pastoral life is one of almost relentless and unremitting giving—and just when you think you’ve given all you can, you suddenly find that you need to give even more. It’s just the way it is, but there are resources available to you to help refill the well again, and Streams of Wholeness can be a key one.
