“Come with me by yourselves to a quiet space and get some rest.” – Mark 6:31
This invitation from Jesus reminds us to pause and enter into a peaceful, prayerful place with God where you may best hear things only your spirit can fully understand. In this season of annual conferences, camps and retreats, and other summer activities, The Upper Room encourages you to create sacred spaces or quiet places where you and others can renew the soul in the midst of busyness. These are prayerfully designed and culled from the publications of The Upper Room. Some spaces may soothe the soul while others might challenge or even unsettle your spirit. Each invites you to listen, to grow, and to commune with our loving God.
