They surround us all. Sometimes these places are there right in front of our eyes, and sometimes we have to seek them out.
One such place in my life has been Trinity Lutheran Church in Wausau, WI. I have been a part of this congregation since I was baptized in January of 1958. This sanctuary became a quiet place of retreat on September 11, 2001 when a group of sadly miss-lead men caused the death of 3,000 souls. The congregation would not hold a service until later on that week, yet I came here that night for the peace that passes all understanding.
We all need the silence to appreciate God in our lives. In that still small voice, he speaks to us through the turmoil of our lives. In Jesus, he became the good shepherd who came to seek and to save that which was lost.
You are all welcome to check out my place of spiritual solitude. Check it out at trinityonstewart.org/. If you are in the Wausau area next week, please check out the schedule for Holy Week. Come and see what He did for you!
