Silence is a key characteristic of Quaker worship. The author shares his experience of learning to wait in the silence and find God. Perfect for seekers, inquirers, and seasoned Friends.

John Punshon has written a small and excellent essay on Quaker tradition. He presents the uniqueness of Quaker faith and practice while also relating it to the tradition of Christian spirituality. (His section on silence and the cross, for example, is superb.) The grace of Punshon’s message is matched only by the grace of his writing style. I hope this book will find its way into many hands, and minds, and hearts.” ~ Parker J. Palmer, author of Let Your Life Speak and On the Brink of Everything: Grace, Gravity & Getting Old
