Dovehouse Ministries programs are for Christians of all denominations and anyone seeking to grow in relationship with God in Christ Jesus.
Directed Silent Retreat
A directed silent retreat is an opportunity to take time away from the noise and distraction of everyday life, to rest and listen for God. God longs for relationship with us--a loving, growing relationship. God loves when we choose to take time away from the things that tug at us to be
with Him. He wants to draw near and to give to us. Prayer is relationship, and silence is simply making a space for us to listen to God. When a retreat is directed and silent, it means that the retreatant spends time alone with God in prayer and silence.
Gail meets with the retreatant to process times of prayer and to mutually discern the movements of the Holy Spirit, what is coming up in prayer and in relationship with God. Each meeting takes place daily while on the silent retreat.
Quiet Days take place several times a year at Mercy Convent in Nashville. These days offer
a day to take time away when longer silent retreats are not possible. It is an opportunity to be quiet
with the Scriptures to rest and seek God.
