One Thing I Ask - To Dwell with God: Lenten Half-Day Retreat

2001, 4 pp
The season of Lent is about homecoming. As the season turn, we find ourselves caught in the whirl of life. Too many good things crowd our days and draw us away from the centre. We may as well be far from home, wandering in foreign territories. We hardly know our own hearts, let alone the face of our Maker. As a result, we have little or no energy for vital engagement with the needs of the world.

Then Lent comes again – the season of awakening, repentance and renewal. With fearless honesty, we face our inner emptiness and recognize our true desires, our deep longing for God. Yet even before we turn around, God beckons with outstretched arms, waiting and longing for our return.

The road home leads through the desert, past three crosses on a hill, and descends into a tomb. In the silence of darkness, the soul waits for new life.

This half-day retreat offers an opportunity to pause on the journey. With Psalm 27:4 as a centrepiece, the Lenten Quiet Day provides space for silence, reflection, meditation on scripture, prayer and conversation with other pilgrims.
