Friday, January 13. Today is the birthday of George Fox, a writer in the Quaker tradition. How is silence a profound form of conversation? Where do you find worshipful silence?

I find silent conversation, if you will, weekly when attending Quaker Meeting on Sundays. We sit in silence for one hour with the caveat that if someone feels moved to speak that they may. However, in our meeting speaking out is infrequent. However, it is afterward when we gather for a carry in meal that discussions take place. I cherish this hour of weekly silence.
