Tomorrow I head off to Holy Cross Monastary in New York.
I am looking forward to this experience of prayer, worship and solitude.
A few years back I went to the Mountains of North Carolina to spend the weekend without a television, without a computer, without music, without human contact…it was a great time to just pray and recognize my connection to God.
While this experience won’t be limited to solitude, and I will have an opportunity to speak with the Monks, I am excited about a time of spiritual renewal. I am packing more books than clothes, and that is a very freeing feeling.
