NB Women: Silent Retreat

Saturday, April 13 | 9am – 4pm *doors open at 8:30am

We are honored to have Gail Donahue and Joan Kelley with My Life is Sacred to lead this silent retreat for NB Women on-site at NorthBridge Church.

What Do You Mean By “Solitude?”

Dallas Willard says that practicing solitude with silence are the most important spiritual disciplines for people today. In our busy, noisy world we need to “unhook” and get away in order to be alone and be ourselves with our Lord. Solitude and silence make space — space in our souls and space in our lives — for God to do a deep work within us and through us in our relationships with others. The normal way to practice solitude and silence is get alone with God and to be silent in a quiet place for some hours or days. Perhaps you take a walk on a nature trail or sit beside a lake or a creek. Or a quiet spot in a park or your backyard may work well. Even a secluded chair inside — as long as all your communication and media devices are turned off!

The point of your time in solitude and silence is to spend time in conversation with God and not try to make anything happen. In solitude and silence you’re learning to stop doing, stop producing, stop pleasing people, stop entertaining yourself, stop obsessing and let God come alongside you and fill you with his thoughts and fill you with his abundant life.


Registration includes coffee, tea, pastries, box lunch, all retreat material and a gift at the end of the day.

*Space is limited. Registration is open through April 5th.
