I love faith based retreats, praise and worship nights, spiritual conferences and Christian concerts! These overtly uplifting, exciting experiences appeal to my outgoing nature.
I recently heard someone describing one of these events as 'life-changing!' Not for me, nope, not-so-much.
When I ponder the moments of faith that have been life-changing (for me) they were almost always quiet. They usually took place in the silence of my soul, after receiving the Eucharist, when God would speak to my heart. They were profound, rare and never forgotten whispers that reconstructed my heart and redirected my faith journey.
This doesn't mean that others don't have these moments in the midst of the energy of an event, just that we should exercise caution when describing what to expect, because each person's interaction with the Lord is unique to them. So go, enjoy and grow spiritually in your own way! God bless.
