Colleges retreat for spiritual study
Students and directors from six of Oklahoma’s campus ministries traveled to Kansas for the All-Wesley Retreat, a jurisdiction-wide event Feb. 13-15.
Communion includes chocolate candy. A speaker quoted the movie character “Forrest Gump,” whose box of assorted chocolates was an analogy for life’s unpredictability. A total of 130 people, from 10 Wesley Foundations in four states, attended the retreat at Camp Horizon, Arkansas City, Kan. The 70 Oklahomans represented OU, East Central University, Southwestern Oklahoma State University, Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College, Northeastern State University, and the University of Central Oklahoma.
