Quiet Day – Hineni
September 16 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm AEST
HINENI: Waiting on God with receptivity and openness as we move into a new tomorrow.
HINENI is the word often used by prophets in the Jewish Scriptures when God called them. It means “Here I am”, and suggests receptivity to however God may choose to meet them. It is an empty-handed stance in which we admit we don’t have the answers and that we cannot control what God might say or be or ask.
As we move into a new phase of life with Covid-19 in 2022, we find ourselves feeling unsure, perhaps, of what new directions might be opening to us, and confused about where to begin this new journey.
This quiet day will give you time for reflection and meditation to simply be in this receptive stance and let God meet you where you are.
QUIET DAY DIRECTOR: Margaret Wesley is an Anglican parish priest and spiritual director who has combined soul care, teaching and writing in various ways over nearly 30 years of ministry. She remembers reading these words from Isaiah 6 for the first time as a teenager:
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?”
And joining with Isaiah’s, “Here am I; send me!” in a way that she knew would take her on a wild adventure. And it has! This quiet day takes her back to that moment as we all respond to God’s call to be present in our anxious world in a new way in the new year.
