Be Still and Know: Reflections From A Month Of Silence

Guest speaker: Judy Leatherwood Smith

Last week Bill ended his talk with a suggested mantra from the

Hebrew Scriptures:

Be still and know that I am God.

Be still and know that I am.

Be still and know.

Be still.


This is what I did for my 31 day silent retreat. At the end I made a

bookmark with the portion that says, “Be Still and Know.” Bill did not

know this and last Sunday we had already discussed my teaching

today. To me, this is one of those occurrences of gentle guidance, of

the kind of grace that surrounds us every day of our lives to encourage

and help us…if we notice…especially when we expect it, name it.
