"Silence and solitude are precious commodities in my life. My restless self finds peace only when I rest in God." --Brennan ManningWhether we find solitude in a quiet and secluded retreat setting, on a park bench in the midst of a bustling city, seated in a 747 at 30,000 feet, or while pausing at our kitchen window, the call of solitude is a gentle but insistent tug on our hearts. We long, in these moments, to go deeper with God. We pause to wait on Him in silence. But sometimes we'd like a wise guide who can help us with this practice. In his honest, original, and winning way, beloved author and retreat leader Brennan Manning shares his wisdom, stories, and heart from his own experiences in solitude. Brennan's meditations will prompt your own pursuit of God in the quiet places of your life. "Souvenirs of Solitude" includes an eight-day retreat guide that provides stimulating promptings for your own meditation during solitude. Whether you use all eight or only an entry or two, you'll find these exercises a refreshing breather from everyday concerns.
