But isn't the purpose of all ministry to reveal that
God is not a God of fear but a God of love? And
couldn't this be accomplished by gently and carefully
converting the empty silence into a full silence, the
anxious silence into a peaceful silence, and the restless
silence into a restful silence, so that in this converted
silence a real encounter with the loving Father could
take place? What a power our word would have if it
could enable people to befriend their silence!
