Come to the Quiet– Listening to the Stillness and Silence
Leader: Pat Shea
Days become shorter, nights grow longer and summer’s clamor perishes; all giving way to opportunities of quieting our inner chatter and opening to the whispers and silence of the Divine Word. In return and rest you will be saved; quietness and trust will be your strength.(Isaiah 30:15) Let us not refuse. Lunch is included. Fee: $20
Come to the Quiet is an opportunity to enter a day of peaceful, spiritual refreshment. The day begins with a short reflection on ways to engage with and respond to the Divine Word that comes to us in so many ways—a word, holy text, a poem, a piece of art, music, others, nature. Following the short reflection is quiet time to use as you choose. A nutritious seasonal lunch is served at noon and after lunch, continued quiet time. The day ends with a short sharing session.
