Embrace Silence and Stillness at Our New Summer Retreat

It’s 5:30 a.m. The alarm goes off. Ready, set, go!

Somedays, it feels more like ‘Ready or not, the day is coming, so get up!’

Your mind has already started running through your mental to-do list, whether or not your body and mind are ready to face the day.

In today’s society, we are running from one thing to the next barely catching a breath. Your soul craves for a break, for stillness, for peace.

Silence allows a connection to God beyond what words can express.

While you become aware of all the distractions and noises in your life, you will be able to see how silence can transform you, your perspective, and your faith.

Proverbs 17: 28 says “Be still and know that I am God.” Be still? Is that even possible?

It is and it can be. When we force ourselves to stop and slow down, we can make room to hear God.

Imagine having absolute peace and quiet. It sounds delightful and wonderful, right?

The time is now. Silence. Stillness. Peace. It is all within reach.

We invite you to join us June 14-16 for our first Silent Retreat at Carol Joy Holling Camp,

Conference & Retreat Center.

Matthew 11:26 instructs us to “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will

give you rest.”

Rest. Pause. Breathe. Take the time to hear God and relish in what He has given you and all of us, His undivided attention and never-ending love.

During this spiritual weekend, you can expect to have scheduled times for silence, worship, walking a labyrinth, prayer, and self-reflection.

This time is an opportunity to reflect inwardly and process your thoughts in a calm way that will draw you closer to God and refocus your mind and soul.

Let God restore you during this time. Prayerfully consider attending this retreat.

Whether it is your first silent retreat or your 20th, we look forward to seeing you there!

In John 14:27, Jesus reminds us “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”
