Speaker: COL Tim & Christine Hayes, USA

Topic: “The Characters of Christmas”

About the Topic: You know the story. But do you know the people in the story? Who were the shepherds? What were the angels singing? Who exactly was there around the manger? And what do they all have to say about the baby they came to worship? Join us as we raise our gaze to the characters on the outer edges of the nativity to see why they remain focused on the manger.

About Winter Retreat at WSS: The Christmas season is special anywhere, but we take great joy in hosting guests during Christmas and New Year’s at White Sulphur Springs. The stunning mountains covered with snow, the tables laden with warm food, the hotels decorated in the spirit of the holiday season, and the meaningful connections made between families and friends make Winter Retreats unlike any other season throughout the year. Many guests who live the ever-transient military lifestyle join us year after year, and we’re honored to be a place families have made part of their holiday tradition.
