Meeting God in Shared Silence

Increasingly, people appear to crave a quiet place. Congregations can use communal silence as a way to help members hear God speak to and empower them, individually and corporately. Holy silence is not merely about being quiet; it is about responding to God’s invitation to listen. It is an active, not passive practice. That is why silence is an ancient faith practice of the church. Read and download this reflection on the history and benefits of silence, written by J. Brent Bill, author of Holy Silence: the Gift of Quaker Spirituality.
