Creative Ideas for Quiet Days
Full Product Description
Going a day retreat or quiet day is a regular activity for many local churches. During the preparatory seasons of Advent and Lent, they are especially popular. While many retreat houses and religious communities offer a program for such days, many groups prefer a do-it yourself approach.
This resource contains twelve complete day-long programs that are focused around different themes and are appropriate for use at varying times of the Christian year. It is suitable for all ages and assorted pastoral contexts. It also gives step-by-step instructions on creating your own program from scratch. Each session includes: opening worship, short talk 1, reflection exercise, short talk 2, second reflection exercise, prayers and blessings.
Additionally there are leaders' notes on all practical aspects of planning and conducting such a day, from booking the venue to handout templates. This new edition comes with download able worship and reflection materials to enrich your program.

Creative Ideas for Quiet DaysIan Gibson, via The Good Book Stall
Sue spent her childhood near the sea and she compares quiet days with the rock pools she loved to explore – full of hidden surprises and delights just awaiting our discovery. The book is not just a narrative to help those leading quiet days but also a manual and guide, where to start, what resources you may need, themes, content list, check list for making sure you have got all you may want. Firmly based in scripture it brings a freshness and liveliness to preparing what can be to some fairly dour days. The content is refreshingly different and reflective. Just reading some of the plans is an education and I am certain that retreat leaders will place this on their shelves as a very useful and entertaining resource book.
Review is of previous edition which had no CD ROM. Editor
