Queries on Silence

What we are doing as a Meeting:

Are our Meetings for Worship held in a spirit of expectant waiting and communion with the Holy Spirit?

How do we prepare our hearts and minds for worship?

Personal Queries:

Do I set aside time regularly to engage the Holy Spirit in silence?

Quotes on Silence:
