The Power of Quiet in a World of Noise
Part 4 of the series "Unhurrying with a Rule of Life", as part of Practicing the Way. Richard Foster once said, “Our adversary, the devil, majors in three things: noise, hurry, and crowds.” It’s not just the hurry of the modern, secular world that’s at odds with the life we crave, but the noise. For millennia, master teachers of the way of Jesus have said that silence and solitude are indispensable to the spiritual life. In this teaching, we explore the practice and power of quiet in a world that can’t stop talking.
