Silence Is Golden

Silence Is Golden

Learn how to grow through solitude.
Single Session Bible Study

Overview

When scholars of American religion try to describe evangelicals, they describe us as restless, eager, preachy, and committed to spreading the good news. While these are undoubtedly virtues in telling the world about Jesus, this restless and talkative group seems to have trouble sitting still and keeping quiet. Since when did we become such bad listeners?

In Adie Johnson's reflection on group solitude, she reminds us of the value of silence, particularly when done as a group. Despite a general dependence on women to be communicators, God may call us to a deeper communication—without words—to draw us closer and to fill us with his love.
