“When language ceases, silence begins.  But it does not begin because language ceases.  The absence of language simply makes the presence of  Silence more apparent.”  Max Picard Silence, xix


Silence, the beginning and end—alpha and omega—of sound and speech, calls us to listen.  Listening beyond words carries us from communication into communion.  In communion, one’s own self is dividend no more, and the barriers dividing us from All That Is are dissolved, at least for a timeless moment.   Thomas Merton tells us, “this is something that the deepest ground of our being cries out for….”  

Recall that the symbol points us to the ungraspable unknown.  Our most effective attempts to speak what cannot really be uttered, deliver us into silence.  

Ironically, for an hour and a half, we will use words in an effort to evoke a greater reverence for the silence that is always present, under, above, and all around the most beautiful sounds and most grating noise.  We may have some minutes of actual silence in the service of enriching our experience of it beyond our short, virtual meeting.
