Quiet Day is one of those days when we really are Seminary. One task of Seminary is to provide some space for each of us to be present with God. All relationships require time; and our relationship with God is no exception. Too many of our conversations are one-sided - they are often fleeting, offered in a rush. So setting some time for a serious conversation is important.

The conventions of this day are simple. We observe silence right after the first meditation for the day. We may walk; we may read; we may just sit quietly somewhere. We should not study or write a paper. We should spend the time with God.

We welcome Brother David Vryhof to the campus to lead our meditations. It is an honor to have him with us.
