The Practice of Silence is for Finding God, Not Simply Peace — A Quote by J. Brent Bill in “Holy Silence”

“Silence begins with expectation — the expectation of encountering God. Holy silence is just not an exercise in clearing your thoughts or finding a little peace and quiet. Peace and quiet may come, but they will come as a result of having been in the presence of the ever-living, ever-loving Christ. One incentive for getting away from earthly noise and human voices is to hear the Voice from Heaven.”
