Silent retreat. What is that, many may ask. Well, when you go to such retreat you do not talk for a few days. Some people cannot stop talking for even a minute, not to say for a few days! Well, I heard friends going to such retreat before. They said it is very good for meditation and prayers. I suppose it is useful during this time to talk to God and read the Bible, also to hear what God has to say to us. Of course, we still can hear from God while back to where we are, but many who have been to this type of retreat say that one can experience God more closely.
One such retreat is the Seven Fountain Retreat in Chiangmai, Thailand. I read of an experience of a pastor from Singapore. Click on the title of this blog to read what he has written.
