A PLACE OF REFRESHMENT

Posted on 28 January 2011
On Wednesday 27th January, Jon joined Stephen for his monthly retreat at the Orthodox Monastery of St. John the Baptist, Tolleshunt Knights.

Fro many years, Stephen has taken monthly and annual retreats as a means to devote time to prayerful reflection and study and to ‘listening to God’ in the midst of the pressures of busy ministerial life. His monthly retreats are usually at Tolleshurt where he has found warm friendship and support ... and space. These days, he says, have been for him oases where he can gain refreshment to enable him to undertake his work as pastor and Bible teacher.

First impressions for Jon? ‘A good opportunity to establish some distance between routine activities and the need to prioritise time for God.‘
