Silence in a Noisy Season: Silence -- A Living Experience

"The inward way of the Spirit is believed not to be dependent upon outward rites, ceremonies, or liturgical aids to worship, but it is maintained that 'the presence of Christ in the midst' can be a living experience for all who open themselves to the Spirit of God. This openness and living experience is achieved through silence."
