Day of Silence
Today we are beginning a silent retreat after breakfast. That seems, on the one hand, kind of strange and even counter-productive for a Stewardship Commission that flew in from around the country to discuss stewardship strategies and resources for churches wrestling with diminishing resources. We've talked about the interior and spiritual dimension of stewardship. But today we are all going to practice it. That means, sigh, the iphone goes off till dinner as does email and internet. It will mean the discipline of listening to God without the many interruptions I have become so used to (addicted to?). Shhhhh.
