- It wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be to get started. In fact, I just kind of realized on the drive out of town that it had happened. I was in silence and retreating.
- One of the things I found most challenging was managing the tension between being and doing. I told myself that I went with no agenda, no work that had to be completed, no thing that I had to accomplish, no problem that I had to fix. Yet, as I tried to be still, I often found my mind racing with thoughts about the church and needs that exist.
- The hardest part was staying present in the retreat through the final morning. I could feel the demands of the office and the afternoon calling me back. To simply “be” became more challenging.
