Behold, the Presence of God – 2D1N Guided Silent Retreat

Behold, the Presence of God – 2D1N Guided Silent Retreat

Posted on 11 Jul 2022

Why come for this retreat?

Today, we are confronted relentlessly with a myriad of changes and challenges in many fronts. As believers surely, we are not spared from the influence and impact of these challenges of our time. Hence, it is not uncommon for us to feel ‘spent’ from all the anxieties and fears that veer our attention from the LORD to the world. Moreover, it can be a conundrum to wonder upon our calling when the latter comes to a standstill even in the midst of many harried activities and commitments.

All the more, then, it is vital for us to carve out time and space intentionally, especially during the Christmas Season, to behold the presence of God in our lives and enter more deeply into communion with Him — unhurriedly, of course. In so doing, we let God come to us, to discern His way and choose life with the LORD in these unprecedented times.

This retreat is an invitation to an extended time alone with God. The 2-day-1 night retreat will help you deepen the vital spiritual disciplines of silence, solitude, Scripture reading, reflection and prayer. You will also be guided to recognise and respond to the revelation of God through His Word. An optional one to one spiritual direction will also be provided during the retreat.

Ms Ang Gim Har, Associate Spiritual Director, would guide the registrants and provide a retreat handbook for each registrant.
