Wow, a great post. In the past few months, I have found opportunities for silence when usually there are words - and it has been difficult for me to keep quiet. Right after a friend or co-worker says something of consequence, usually with pain attached to it, there is a tendency within me to speak - to immediately console. But careful listening requires a courage to let things sit, to allow the speaker to know I am with them, that they are not alone, and, to say with silence, "this time between us is holy".
Great response; I too, find myself rushed to console and resolve. God bless,Fred
