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.

There was this article I was going to copy for you, remember? About the mega church and the monastery? (I have earmarked it to copy on my newly cleaned desktop - amazing). This is exactly the kind of thing the article talks about - it may have been in CT. Taking time to practice the ancient practices in the midst of the typical meeting time/working retreat time. Hope it is a lovely, restful, inspiring day for everyone, but especially you.
