Silence Opens Us to Hear the Deep Things from God — A Quote by J. Brent Bill in “Holy Silence”

“When we really want to hear, and be heard by, someone we love, we do not go rushing into noisy crowds. Silence is a form of intimacy. That’s how we experience it with our friends and lovers. As relationships grow deeper and more intimate, we spend more and more quiet time alone with our lover. We talk in low tones about the things that matter… That is why Christ comes to us when our hearts and minds are still and silent.”

— J. Brent Bill in “Holy Silence: The Gift of Quaker Spirituality”, p 7
