I’ve never been much of a retreat guy, but when I was in seminary I went on a singles retreat. I was new, single, and didn’t know anybody. I decided I needed to get to know some of my classmates and attending the retreat seemed to be an easy way to do that. However, what Dr. Grant Howard taught on that weekend was transforming for me. He taught on priorities. If something is your number one priority, how can you ever really get to number two? How can you consistently meet all the biblical responsibilities in your life and relationships? Dr. Howard laid out a clear framework for life management that I’ve returned to again and again in my ministry.
