Retreats That Resonate Feb 14, 2005
Hutchinson, a popular spiritual writer and speaker, offers five short retreats suitable for individuals and groups. The basic ingredients in each are reflection, quotations from contemporary and traditional sources including scripture, and "Ask Yourself" questions. The topics are The Lord's Prayer, holy leisure, inspired fiction, true relations, and the savored life. The pages are printed with wide margins to allow room for appropriate short quotations in the margins, leaving plenty of "white space" and providing an inviting format. Each page contains gems to be savored, remembered, noted.
Of holy leisure, Hutchinson writes, "Humility does not come easily to those accustomed to getting things done," asks How will I nurture the God-seed in me? and quotes Julian of Norwich: "The simple enjoyment of our Lord is in itself a most blessed form of thanksgiving." And those appear on only two pages. This is an easy book to use formally or informally, simply picking it up and turning to any page for a short reflection/prayer.
