Overview

“For God alone my soul in silence waits....”

In these reflections on Psalm 62 Margaret Guenther provides the foundation for a time of reflection and retreat without ever leaving home. The book’s first chapter introduces us to ways of making a retreat wherever we are, at a place apart or in the midst of our daily lives. Guenther then offers eight meditations on Psalm 62, with its themes of waiting on God’s presence with patience, trust, and expectation. She explores the images the psalm evokes of longing, silence, waiting, safety, enemies, and God as a rock and refuge. As in all her books, Guenther finds new ways to explore these ancient themes with the wit and practicality of an accomplished storyteller.

These eight meditations can be read consecutively over the course of a single day or weekend, or spaced over time with periods of reflection in between. Each meditation ends with ideas for further prayer and pondering.

My Soul in Silence Waits is one of our series of Cowley Cloister Books: smaller format, gift edition books designed for meditative and devotional reading.

Editorial Reviews

Weavings
Guenther's own attentiveness to God's presence in the words of this psalm drew me into a quiet place of waiting and listening in spite of the noise of my daily life. Her questions probed the deepest places of my heart, encouraged me to be honest with myself, and enabled me to pay attention to God in new ways.
Episcopal Life
Guenther encourages those of us who feel so tightly scheduled and burdened with obligations ... and gives us the idea that we can ‘come away and rest’ even for brief periods of time.
Pacific Church News
Margaret Guenther understands the struggles we go through when we try to remain brave and rely on God. Her book, My Soul in Silence Waits, is an excellent companion to a complex and ultimately encouraging psalm.
