Solitude – Part 4

Solitude is an integral part of the spiritual life.  Unfortunately, like many of the great Christian traditions, the art of solitude has been lost for most Christians.  The True Pursuit Team sheds light on why solitude is so important, what it does for our relationship with God and practical ways in which we can practice solitude in our everyday lives.

Why Retreat?

I recently retreated with 6 other men for a weekend. We spent about 44 hours together in a remote but comfortable setting to talk about our spiritual lives, our journeys and our vision for the future. The three of us who planned the weekend made a decision to forgo an agenda and trust the Holy Spirit to lead us during our time together.

The Weekend

At True Pursuit we put a lot of emphasis on the Weekend, meaning the two weekend events the team puts on each year; one in Michigan and the other in Pennsylvania. We tell men the weekend is different from any other Men’s Weekend they might have attended from a church or organization. And we believe we are right! So what follows are some comments from our True Pursuit Team about the weekends and why they are so important to our mission.

Bad Fuel

Not too long ago I was talking to a young friend of mine about his life, and some of the poor decisions that he had been making. He made the statement that he had been living a life that was being driven by “bad fuel” and that he was aware that he needed to start letting “good fuel” drive his choices.

Thunderstorms

A few years ago we had a Tornado that ripped through our little town. It came up fast, and the fact that we had never had one here before caused most of us to get caught off guard. My daughter-in-law called me and asked if we were in our basement? I said no, I am watching Syracuse play in the NCAA tournament. She told me that there was a Tornado heading our way and that we had better take cover.
