Easter is April 21st this year. Although that may seem like a long time, it isn’t to Wayne and Nancy Spears. They are the founders of Abbie Lane Retreat in south Red River Parish.
Wayne Spears explained the plans to the Men’s Breakfast held recently at Martin Baptist Church. Spears said, “We are planning a sunrise experience along our prayer trail. It will be a neat experience with participants walking from Gethsemane to Calvary and on to the Empty Tomb.”
At each station, Spears explained that a local pastor would present a brief presentation on the meaning of each location leading up to finding the tomb empty at the conclusion of the service.
There will be a message plus music and singing as participants make the trek form station to station. Spears invited area churches and groups to come to Abbie Lane before Easter. He invited whole churches to come and walk the prayer trail.
For more information, call Abbie Lane at 318-505-8578. Abbie Lane is located on US 71 in south Red River Parish.
“My vision,” said Spears, “Is to bring the community together and cross over boundaries that we have built up over the years.”
