You will keep in perfect peace
    those whose minds are steadfast,
    because they trust in you.  —Isaiah 26:3

Schedule a fixed time each day (between 1 and 10 minutes) for wordless silence in the presence of God. Unplug yourself from all media one day a week, or at least for an evening. Pay attention to how your soul wants to use that quiet time. Spend one whole evening during Advent, or at least one hour, in total stillness and silence. Turn everything off, light a candle or a fire, abstain from books and music, stop talking in your head. Listen. Who is knocking at the door of your heart? What does your deepest desire want to tell you?  —Jim Friedrich, Christian Century, December 7, 2014, Silencing

Let me unplug, fall silent, abstain from the unexceptional noise, to listen as you knock at the door of my heart. Amen. —The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster
