A Book of Silence

I want to recommend Sara Maitland’s A Book of Silence.

I don’t know what God wants with you. But, with time, I feel more confident about what he wants from me.

For a long time, I thought his silence was a rebuff.

Now, I’m more convinced it’s an invitation to do likewise.

The silence seems like something he wants to share.

    I can’t imagine anything better than resting transparently before God, being silent. Thanks for the recommendation Adam.

    By blog standards, a short post is close enough to silence. Good post.

    Silence and hiddeness are extremely productive theological concepts, I think. Or at least they can be. Thanks for this.

    “Be Still and know that I am God” speaks volumes in a world of gibberish.
