Why retreat? | Discerning God on Spiritual Retreat Episode 01

Host: Steve Macchia, Guest: Jeremy Stefano

“A holy place to draw away to a space and time dedicated solely to God, to be present to God.” – Jeremy Stefano

There are many ways to retreat, but on a spiritual retreat the exclusive desire is to be with Jesus. Likened to his invitation to the disciples immediately prior to the feeding of the 5,000, Jesus says “come with me by yourselves to a solitary place and get some rest.” (Mark 6:31). On spiritual retreat we are saying yes to that invitation, hopping on a boat in the middle of a lake (or a retreat center), separated from the busyness and noisiness of life, to simply be with the Lover of our souls. Retreats are special times with Jesus, replenished in wilderness or in plenty.
