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!
