“Are you experiencing the full weight and measure of the pleasure of God in your life?”
If we’ll be honest—most of us would answer that question with, “Nope.” That is why we started WAAWG (pronounced waa–guh). Weekends Almost Alone With God were born out of the biblical examples of Abraham, Moses, Jacob, Jesus and others.
The concept is pretty simple; take a small cadre of men into the wilderness (or women into a more comfortable retreat center), set them up alone for 8-10 hours a day, and then bring them back to a roaring campfire, good camp coffee, steaks and some excellent man-time around that campfire. That is a very simple explanation of WAAWG. We believe this wild idea: If we could get a man alone with God for a few hours over a weekend; let him read the Word; let him take a nap or two; let him listen to his own heart and the sounds of rushing water; let him open his heart to the King who is passionately wild about him—and then let’s see what God might say to that man. It is simply beyond description.
When we asked participants “How did your expectation of the weekend compare with what you actually experienced and received?” we got some of these responses:
“It was better than I expected and much of what I hoped for.”
“My expectation fell short of what I was privileged to experience.”
“The experience was far greater and reaching and awakening than I could have imagined.”
Here are a couple of other quotes from men who WAAWG.
“As a young twenty something, I rarely slow down and receive clarity of direction. This WAAWG was a great time of simply being before the Father and opening my mind to His will for my life.” Seth—young pastor and passionate man for God
“I came with a good relationship with the Father but was unaware of how task driven my time with Him had become. It was great to get uncomfortable and be stripped of my agenda and spend time alone with God.” John—Caught Marriage Ministry & a wild at heart dude
So—we take a few guys out on WAAWG each spring, summer & fall in Colorado. This is a transferable concept—meaning it can be done anywhere there is wilderness and men who want to try it. We offer facilitation and direction to the men who attend as well as making our team of Spiritual Directors available to come to your location and demonstrate how to plan, coordinate, staff and run a Weekend Almost Alone With God. Just give us a call or drop us a line and we’ll help.
Oh—by the way—we also suggest DAWGs. That would of course mean Day Alone With God. Check out our resources page for a directive we suggest to experience a Day Alone With God.
