Productive Silence


Extroverts like me with a tendency towards type-A driveness cannot read things like this enough and just sit in it. 

“If we are witnesses to Christ in today’s market places, where there are constant demands on our whole person, we need silence.  If we are to be always available, not only physically, but by empathy, sympathy, friendship, understanding . . . we need silence.  To be able to give joyous, unflagging hospitality, not only of house and food, but of mind, heart, body and soul, we need silence.”  – Catherine de Hueck Doherty  (Oct. 28 Aidan Reading from Celtic Daily Prayer)

May your moments of silence today lead you to further productivity of the actions of your heart.  Our world is crying out for a restoration, we can meet that need not with an anxious mind, but one that is coming out of a productive silence. peace,Marshall
