Session 1 Breakouts
Silence, Solitude, and Prayer
We need a conscious and intentional plan to keep God at the center of everything we do. Silence, Solitude and Prayer provide an intentional framework for swimming against such strong current of our culture which never wants to stop. First, with Solitude, we will explore what it means for us to flee from the world. Second, with Silence, we will explore how it is an indispensable discipline in the spiritual life. Silence is Solitude practiced in action. Finally, with prayer, I want to challenge you with the call to pray always.
