"Yes, God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not be lost but may have eternal life." (John 3:16)

Silence Speaks Truthfully

Notes to a presentation by Michael Whelan SM PhD

Sacred Silence in Literature and the Arts Conference 2019

This presentation is a meditation. Silence is approached as an attribute of Being – not something we invent or impose. Something beyond mere absence of noise.

1. Breathing exercise – 10 minutes. Explain briefly.

2. Read excerpts from Les Murray’s “Noonday Axeman”
