Goin' the Extra..aaamile

…and if anyone forces you to go one mile, go also the second mile

..so am back

My last post was on the 7th of January.

Today is the 13th of Jan

..that means it has been 5 days of no-posts from my side.

Where was I? Well..

I was out of station. I attended a residential retreat in Bangalore for 5 whole days, [minus phones, minus communication and minus the world outside] just spending time between me and my God, listening to His WORD, praising and worshiping HIM …oh and yes, it was my birthday on the 9th of Jan (same week) no better place to be, than a place to be with God himself.

So why a Retreat then? To give myself a chance for an encounter with God, with other people, with issues and with self. It isn’t just not for the purpose of getting away and staying away. Everything involved in getting away, and all that is done while away, involves coming back with a renewed faith and sense of purpose in our spiritual life

And what an experience it was! No matter how often you do it, you will always find a renewed joy when you get back. 

Always a good idea!

    I too believe in attending a retreat once in a year atleast. It’s like taking a car for regular servicing. It also gives us a chance to slow down life and just be appreciative of things we fail to notice because of the hurry!
