Rick RichardsMy time at Emery House made me realize how much I value physical work and how much that work is part of my prayer life. Because Emery House is a monastic house, you sense that this is a place for silence and introspection, even when the Brothers are away. It was the perfect place for me to close my eyes and reflect on the experiences I’d had over the last year. It really helped me to find the language to speak about them.
