Item description for My Soul in Silence Waits: Meditations on Psalm 62 (Cloister Books) by Margaret Guenther...
For God alone my soul in silence waits.... In these reflections on Psalm 62 Margaret Guenther provides the foundation for a time of reflection and retreat without ever leaving home. The book s first chapter introduces us to ways of making a retreat wherever we are, at a place apart or in the midst of our daily lives. Guenther then offers eight meditations on Psalm 62, with its themes of waiting on God s presence with patience, trust, and expectation. She explores the images the psalm evokes of longing, silence, waiting, safety, enemies, and God as a rock and refuge. As in all her books, Guenther finds new ways to explore these ancient themes with the wit and practicality of an accomplished storyteller. These eight meditations can be read consecutively over the course of a single day or weekend, or spaced over time with periods of reflection in between. Each meditation ends with ideas for further prayer and pondering. My Soul in Silence Waits is one of our series of Cowley Cloister Books: smaller format, gift edition books designed for meditative and devotional reading."

From her rich experience as priest and spiritual director Margaret Guenther has written reflections on Psalm 62 which begins, "For God alone my soul in silence waits; from him comes my salvation." In the introduction the author uses the life of Jesus to illustrate by example the need to "Come Away and Rest". In our hectic and sometimes meaningless busyness, we forget the need for quiet, reflection and prayer. Eight meaningful meditations on the psalm complete with questions for "Prayer and Pondering" provide an opportunity for personal retreat and rest. The format could also be used by a small group of pilgrims to learn together the power of quiet and reflection.
