{ Day 17 }

We’re all familiar with the beautiful hymn, Silent Night. Tonight, let’s put this into practice by unplugging all electronic distractions—TV’s, phones, iPads, laptops, etc.

Silence is often seen as intrusion in our culture today but in reality, it is our most gracious guest. 

Embrace—enjoy. Savor conversations, dust off favorite books, play board games, break out the puzzle or break out in song!

What will be the most difficult thing for you to unplug tonight? 

“Silent solitude makes true speech possible and personal. If I am not
in touch with my own belovedness, then I cannot touch the sacredness of
others. If I am estranged from myself, I am likewise a stranger to
others.”
– Brennan Manning, Abba’s Child: They Cry of the Heart for Intimate Belonging
