What do you hear? Is it the noise of sirens, music, or your children playing in the other room? We live in a fast-paced world where noise dominates and silence is just that ... silent. It patiently waits and just might be the unsung hero of the post-Christian era in America. Whatever it may be, there is no doubt it is essential in the life of one pursuing God. It's perfect model, Jesus, knew its importance and practiced silence and solitude regularly.
Much of our faith and practice today is about words―preaching, teaching, talking with others. These are all good things, yet all of these words are not enough.
They lack the power to bring us into the real presence of God where we can hear his voice. Invitation to Solitude and Silence by Haley Ruth Barton is an invitation to you to meet God deeply and fully outside the demands and noise of daily life.
It is an invitation to solitude and silence. The beauty of a true invitation is that we really do have a choice about embarking on this adventure. God extends the invitation, but he honors our freedom and will not push himself where he is not wanted. Instead, he waits for us to respond from the depths of our desire. Will you say yes?
