On Holiday with God

Full Product Description

‘On Holiday with God’ encourages Christians to retreat from the business of modern life and continually rejuvenate your soul.

Designed as a ‘travel companion’, this book gives you everything you need to make a personal retreat in the Christian tradition, either at home or away, alone or with others.

Part 1 encourages you to:
• Listen to the Spirit,
• Pay attention to inner restlessness
• Notice our need to 'get away'
• Outlines the different types of retreats to best suit your personalities and circumstances
• And offers you 'tips for the trip':
o introducing contemplation
o praying with Scripture
o noticing God in the everyday resisting 'busyness'
o recording the journey - i.e. prayer journal

Part 2 provides a varied and imaginative range of guided spiritual exercises for your time on retreat and offers support for the unexpected things that may emerge.

Part 3 helps you readjust to 'normal life' after the retreat and to explore the question 'where next?'
