Silence in a Noisy Season: A Guiding Silence

"God is above all the God of the normal. In the common facts and circumstances of life, He draws near to us, quietly. He teaches us in the routine of life’s trifles, gently and unnoticed His guidance comes to us through the channels of ‘reason [and] judgment.’ . . . [W]e have been taught by Him when we least suspected it; we have been guided . . . though the guiding hand rested upon us so lightly that we were unaware of its touch."

William Littleboy, quoted in Christian Faith and Practice in the Experience of the Society of Friends, #82.
