If you’re like me, silence is uncomfortable. Sometimes it is almost unbearable.
When I studied in college I needed noise, so the TV was always on. When I was in grad school, I needed noise, so I studied at the coffee shop.
Now that I’m a pastor, I feel like I need the quiet. But I really struggle with knowing how to be quiet and embrace silence.
These words from Eugene Peterson really struck me this morning,
Quiet is the only adequate Womb thick enough to shut out the devil’s noise, protect a life of listening.

How do you experience quiet?
