Being busy has become a badge of honour, to be worn with pride, as if to say "Look how important I am, all the things I have to do, all the people who need me." Maybe we're afraid of being quiet, of having time to just do nothing. What do we do with silence? It feels unfocused and unproductive in a culture where we’re used to noise. Silence in conversations is quickly filled with words, silence in the car with music and silence in the evenings with the TV or our smartphones.
What is it about being alone and quiet that scares us? Are we afraid to hear the small voice within, to see what's really going on in the deepest corners of our hearts? Silence opens up our soul, making us aware of any restlessness, unfulfilled longings, insecurities, loneliness, or sense of inadequacy. But, in doing so, it can also bring peace, acceptance and the space to hear what the Spirit is calling us to.
Join us for our very special Advent worship - where there will be time to sing, pray, cry, reflect, confess and sit in silence before our God.
