A good therapist or minister of friend knows that the best thing to do when a friend is in trouble is to listen. Just to be there. Not to say anything, but to be present, with understanding and love. What if this is true of God, too? What if the silence of God–this sense we have that God isn’t answering our prayers–is really the silence of God’s listening to us with love? In this retreat, with various listening exercises and reflections on the theme of listening in the scriptures, Anderson encourages retreatants to enter more deeply into silence, and so to hear the still small voice that is always calling us home.
