So here's the link I found so interesting. The congregation was contemplating silence and the post lists the quotes they were considering, and one in particular hit me, from Dallas Willard:
"So if we really intend to submit our bodies as living sacrifices to God, our first step well might be to start getting enough sleep. Sleep is a good first use of solitude and silence. It is also a good indicator of how thoroughly we trust in God."
Wow. Right. Between. The. Eyes.
