WHAT IS A SILENT RETREAT?
A silent retreat is stepping away from the noise, from the group, and having a private conversation for an extended period of time with your thoughts which are strictly your own. It is a time to relax and recharge, a space to just “be”. It is committing yourself to a spirit of quiet.
It is taking space out of our busyness to spend quiet time with the Savior. It is spending time apart to be with God, to hear Him, with plenty of peace and quiet. Silence is a wonderful way to reconnect with Him.
A silent retreat is simply a matter of going into a separate place to seek Christian growth. It offers us the grace to be ourselves in God’s presence without any self-consciousness. It is a blessed opportunity to spend time generously in the presence of God. In such a time, God helps us to empty ourselves of cares and anxieties, to be filled up with the wisdom that restores us.
There will be two sessions during this day hosted by Janette Stone to give participants some guidance for their contemplation and the time spent in an environment of few distractions. The brief sessions will help us to feel the calmness and love offered us as God speaks to us in the silence.
A BLESSED OPPORTUNITY TO SPEND TIME GENEROUSLY IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD
