How can we find serenity in the midst of so much noise without and within? Wayne Oates maintains that we can nurture silence in our lives if we truly value it and are eager and dedicated to nourishing it. He explores practical and spiritual ways to maintain peace and centeredness in our work, our relationships, and our daily routines. In silence we can find healing, and in silence we can experience the presence of God as Friend.
This highly readable and engaging guide to finding and cultivating inner peace offers practical tips for the general reader whose life is filled with busyness and stress. Nurturing Silence in a Noisy Heart includes a "practice of silence" test and questions for reflection and discussion which make the book ideal for small group study or as the focus of a retreat or conference.
