up:: Spiritual Disciplines MOC Our Attentional space is limited and what Giving attention is giving authority. In Silence, we grow in awareness of the Holy Spirit by putting all our attention on God.

Silence is frightening

Silence strips us of our ability to defend ourselves. What do we do when we cannot defend or distract ourselves with words? In that quiet there is only God and me.

Silence leads to listening

In Evangelism, there is often a lot of emphasis on talking. Silence and true listening, Seek first to understand, then to be understood, are often the strongest testimony to our faith.

Silence is rest

In Silence, our Frontal lobe gets a rest from thinking and processing the daily noise of information. Our Attentional space recovers and resets itself.
