    Sermon: In Search of a Soul: Seek Solitude
How can our souls deepen if we give them no solitude – no opportunity for reflecting, wondering, considering the big picture of life – much less the opportunity to receive a wisdom, a beauty, a grace from beyond ourselves? But time is so short, and not all of us are built for meditation. Can we afford to seek solitude? Can we afford not to?
