I had a quiet day on Monday. I am trying to do a quiet day a term but struggle sometimes to put it in the diary. What has helped is being accountable to our Common Ground Community and someone has been texting me to make sure I make my quiet day happen. There are areas in life where accountability helps. I am mindful of the dangers of over accountability, the sort of heavy shepherding that can make faith sound like a cult and where it may feel someone else controls you. However, gentle reminders are helpful and keep me on track with my marker posts and shelters – quiet days are part of my rhythm. The picture is me on a swing on Monday – getting to play is an integral part of a quiet day for me.
