Eliot: the silence required

Friday, October 21, 2022
Clap your hands, all you nations;
    shout to God with cries of joy.
    —Psalm 47:1 (NIV)
Where shall the world be found, where will the word
Resound? Not here, there is not enough silence.
    ... T. S. Eliot (1888-1965), from Ash Wednesday, in The Complete Poems and Plays, 1909-1950, Boston: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 1952, p. 65 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 47:1; 4:4; 46:10; 66:1; Eccl. 3:7; Hab. 2:20; Matt. 11:15
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, make Your word known to this generation.
