For our 20th wedding anniversary this past week, my wife gave me a beautiful new prayer book - "Celtic Daily Prayer: Prayers and Readings from the Northumbria Community." The first night I opened it up, the meditation for the day gave me an entirely different perspective on the spirituality of silence:
"After the Second World War, the following words were found written on the wall of a Nazi concentration camp:
I believe in the sun, even when it isn't shining,
I believe in love, even when I feel it is not,
I believe in God, even when He is silent."
