The Call to Be Still

In this winter season, just as the earth rests under her white blanket under the pale light of the North, we too feel the call to be still and be fed by the Silence. There is no better primer on the gifts of silence than Holy Silence by J. Brent Bill, who lightly bears his moniker “imperfect Quaker.” Brent will explain why silence is the Quaker “sacrament,” what happens and doesn’t happen in the Silence, how to find silence in a noisy, noisy world, and what Meister Eckhart meant by “Nothing in all creation is so like God as Silence.”
