Keep Silence

“Let all mortal flesh keep silence, and with fear and trembling stand; Ponder nothing worldly minded, for with blessing in his hand Christ our God to earth descendeth, our full homage to demand.” - Liturgy of St. James, 4th century


Stop the rush, the hustle, the bustle, the crossing of items off lists, the frantic last minute purchases.


Remember what you are celebrating – and Whom.

It is time for silence.

  • Do you find it difficult to stop and spend time in silence, reverence, and awe before God? If so, why?

  • When can you make the time (notice, not “find” the time … we have to make the time) to spend in true worship – worship that is “in spirit and in truth” (John 4:24)?

  • What can you do to stop worldly-minded thoughts and replace them with true homage of God, as the carol above urges?
