Went on a day retreat yesterday. Aside from worship and the prayer of the day we kept a code of silence, even during lunch. There was some tension for me as I'm not one to keep quiet very often, but I leaned into it and was pleasantly surprised. I never realized just how foreign silence is to me, and yet at the same time, how rich. The Bible tells us that Jesus went away in silence and solitude often, I guess I never thought that example ever really applied to me, but I was mistaken. If Jesus, the King of Kings, Lord of Lords needed to get away and have time with His Father on a regular basis, how much more do we?
