Silence is listening with all our might to God. This is prayer at its best. We must learn to be still and listen. We get away from scandals and rumors and judgments and through the practice of silent communion we begin to know the power of prayer. In silence we can close our minds to what the world thinks is desirable. The babble of the world is drowned out so we can hear the voice of the Spirit. We must be faithful to the practice of silence and we will reap rich rewards.

I have been retired from the U.S. government for many years. I was a long time paying member of AOL until May 2009. Until October 2008 I had a fairly extensive genealogy website on AOL. They dropped support.
