Stillness, Solitude, and Silence


The late mystic John Donahue said, “Your trust in your inner belonging radically alters your outer belonging.” He goes on to say, “unless you find belonging in your solitude, your external longing will remain needy and driven.” During this more contemplative worship we will invite this inward journey with contemplative practices that encourage inner-belonging. A journey, Donahue says we enter as individuals and yet emerge from part of a community more capable of serving the needs of hurting world.
