A Silence and Solitude with God
3D2N Timeout with God @ Montigo, Batam
* Spaces are limited and couple room on a first-come-first-serve basis. Single room occupancy surcharges apply.
A silence retreat at Montigo? Sherina had expressed doubt and disbelief: “Wow, Montigo resort! Such luxury! Can we really hear from God in such a luxurious environment with so many distractions?” At the end of the 3D2N retreat, she experienced a deep connection and intimacy with God. Tears simply flowed as she felt His tender touch. With her heart totally surrendered, a gentle whisper came, “My child, expect the unexpected.”
Who is this God that connects with His created beings in such intimacy and unexpected way? Who is God for you? Do you know Him in your ordinary daily living? Do you know Him in the chaos of the broken world we live in?
“And this is eternal life, that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.” (John 17:3; ESV)
This retreat is an invitation by God to you to participate in the love relationship between God the Father, Jesus the Son and the Holy Spirit in silence and solitude with God. You can come as a couple or as an individual retreatant. The group sessions are facilitated and experiential. There will be solitude time alone with God as well as individual conversation with the facilitator or couple session with the facilitator. For couple, guided reflection for couple time with the Trinity will also be provided. By His grace, may you enter into the sacred space where you start to be still and rest in God; where scriptures come alive even as you become more aware of His Presence in your life.
