pews as prisons

What life have you, if you have not life together?
There is not life that is not in community,
And no community not lived in praise of GOD.
Even the anchorite who meditates alone,
For whom the days and nights repeat the praise of GOD,
Prays for the Church, the Body of Christ incarnate.
And now you live dispersed on ribbon roads,
And no man knows or cares who is his neighbor

T.S. Eliot, “Choruses from The Rock”

Sound of Silence

I was blessed by Darryl Madden’s reminder of the importance of silence in our spiritual journey:

We need to find God
He cannot be found
In restlessness
And noise that surrounds

God is a friend
Of silence, you see
Let now this thought
Rest within me

Let us align,
Surrender, our goal
We all need silence
To touch our soul

Nice thoughts to wind down the evening!
