Pick up on a summer mood by seeking to spend some time apart in an unhurried and peaceful way: a real ‘sabbath time with God’ for yourself. In an atmosphere of gentle quiet, participants will be helped to ponder Scripture and to become attentive to the signs of God in their lives and in the world around them. There will be some suggestions for prayer using images from art, poetry and music. Space for personal quiet time and some sharing will be built into the day. Opportunities for guided and common prayer or to meet a spiritual director will be among the options available. This retreat is intended especially for lay people whose available time is limited.
