Jesus had occasions where His posture in prayer was to “look up to heaven.” It is from His examples that you can be encouraged as you engage in prayer and conversation with God during your Silent Retreat time away.
During the semi-directed times together we will reflect on scripture, hear tips for your silent times, and have a brief practice of silence.
It's not uncommon to get to the end of Advent feeling exhausted, sensing we missed the good news of God With Us in a season of buying and busyness.
This Silent Retreat provides time and space to be present to God. It's an opportunity to attune yourself to the "still, small voice" as you prepare your heart for the wonder of Christmas. Through focused teaching segments and guided exercises, retreat facilitator Andrea Hampton will help you quiet yourself and listen.
You will also have ample time to rest and relax. Whether you find a chair overlooking the Chesapeake Bay, enjoy a long walk in nature, or go back to your room and take a nap, the schedule is designed to help you disconnect from your normal pace so that you can be attentive to God.
If 2021 has you longing for an experience that will help you reorient your heart towards Christ, the Silent Retreat may be exactly what you're looking for.
