I spent this past weekend at a Jesuit retreat center in silence. It was fabulous! This was my third annual visit. There is nothing that compares to removing myself from the chaos of daily life and spending a couple uninterrupted days just listening to God. www.ignatiushouse.com is 20 acres of natural beauty. My friend Nikki, who was on our travel team to China this summer, went with me. I'll try to post some thoughts on this experience later.
