Welcome to the month of Stillness. Here’s a poem from this month’s Soul Matters packet being used by our covenant groups. Check out this month’s calendar and join us for Vespers or one of the other programs offered this month.

Keeping Quiet
Pablo Neruda

Now we will count to twelve
and we will all keep still
for once… 

It would be an exotic moment
without rush, without engines…

If we were not so single-minded
about keeping our lives moving,
and for once could do nothing,
perhaps a huge silence
might interrupt this sadness
of never understanding ourselves…

A few questions to consider:

  • What if the doorway into spiritual stillness is learning to look at your present life and say “This is enough?
  • Is your identity rooted in busyness or stillness? And which one do you want it to be rooted in?
  • Is busyness your way of running and hiding from stillness?
