There is a great difference in excellency, usefulness, and comfort between people of clear, digested knowledge, and confused, undigested apprehensions. -Richard Baxter

why retreat later this month?

104.jpgThomas Merton, when asked what the greatest spiritual disease we face today was, replied,

“Efficiency: From the monastery to the Pentagon the plant has to run…and there’s little time or energy left over after that to do anything else.”

Would you be so bold as to enter into a weekend, not without purpose, but one that entirely disregards efficiency? Be with us and Him. We’ll linger in the Psalter.

Rest isn’t merely the absence of activity; it’s the engagement with what’s most needed. Hope you’ll come for a little time to give to the one thing needed (Lk 10:42).
