Minneapolis, MN 2010
This has been a really long and really tough year, especially since January. Seminary is all about deconstructing and re-examining and looking at long-held beliefs and assumptions. Next week I begin my chaplaincy internship, and I knew that I needed to take some time to take care of myself before I can even attempt to take care of other people and be fully present with them. I have learned with my previous silent retreats that it is best to not come with any expectations or goals. I am just going to show up and experience all that I can and relax.
I pray that for everyone. That you might find space for personal reflection, the grace and love of God, and a little bit of relaxation.
