Through the Lens of Faith

Finding time to spend in quiet and balancing it with time with friends can be challenging sometimes. I find I want to spend more time with friends than in quiet, but I am trying to find the opportunities to let myself be in silence. It’s not easy when quiet can scare you instead of bring you peace. wine glasses

But to find this balance we can find our glasses of faith full. By opening ourselves up to the gift of conversation, we can learn things to take back to our silent prayer. By opening ourselves up to the gift of silence, we can make our conversations deeper and our cups fuller.

Consider who in your life fills your cup? Invite that person to share a glass of wine or a cup of coffee and enjoy the balance you two share between silence and conversation.
