The Clamour is Silenced

First day of my retreat in Salisbury. Ahhhhhhhh… breathing deeply. Feels good to be here. Resting up.

Just back from Choral Evensong! 🙂 A visiting choir (Amici Coro) were there, and I sat up in the choir stalls like I had in Durham in July. Lovely sounds.

I smiled as evensong ended and I flicked back to the introduction page and read…

…It is a moment not for disengagement but for recognition that the encounter with the divine requires us to find a place of quiet, almost of solitude, where our own clamour is silenced and the presence of God can be savoured, if only for a moment…
