This is a beautiful and well-written reminder to us all. I haven't read many of the other entries yet, but this has to be a winner!

Very good article. I wondered when Jesus' retreat would pop up in this challenge. If you double space between paragraphs it's easier on the eyes. Good work!

I love your example of the difficulty of hearing God above the "din," and the concept of retreat as surrender. Your piece would be more original without the definitions from the dictionary; it's not my favorite device. Just share your own thoughts--they're very lovely.
Very good thoughts.

Your entry is wonderful and worth taking note of. I too think this could be a winner. Your thoughts flowed clearly as you pointed out even those in the service of Christ can feel disgruntled and resentful if we don't take the example of Christ and retreat from the world for a while.

Had a problem identifing the thesis, perhaps a space between paragraphs would help with readability.
My church used to take a group to Christmount! Thanks for sharing.

A powerful lesson!!! Just put some spaces between paragraphs for an easier read! :)
A dose of good teaching, here. My favorite quote: "Retreat is surrender to the Master’s care for instruction and rest where we can hear Him.... What is required is uninterrupted communion with God and an obedient heart." Careful formatting, including paragraph spacing, would help the reader stay focused.
