The new series of morning bell explores the possibility of silence. More accurately, the giftedness of the sounds around us and the possibility of our own silence in response. The world is full of sound, and we would soon be disappointed if we tried to resist the sound, and grow a practice of prayer or stillness based on silence. Better to allow the sound to offer its gift.
The words are from Ian’s poem ‘Blown Away’ in the book ‘Cave Refectory Road’ and will unfold each day. The images are from a local walk which inspired the poem into being.
