What might we hear if we listened deeply in everyday life? How can we turn away from noise and distraction? What would it be like to embrace silence and pay closer attention to God, each other, ourselves? What if we could cultivate a trusting heart and joyously discover a new interior freedom?
Those are the questions Brother David Steindl-Rast deals with in his book, The Way of Silence – Engaging the Sacred in Daily Life. And it’s about so much more than the absence of noise or not talking.
I hope you will join me for this new book study beginning Sunday, September 5, at 9:15 a.m., in Grace Hall.
You may purchase the book from Amazon. It’s available in audio, Kindle, and paperback formats. Let’s plan to read the chapters 1 and 2 for our first class.
Brother David is a Benedictine monk from Austria. He has been a monk of Mount Saviour Monastery in New York since 1953. You may learn more about him on his website Gratefulness.org
This will be a hybrid class, in-person (Grace Hall) and on Zoom. The Zoom information is as follows:
