Silence helps facilitate the internal transforming power of God. As we enter into silence, we create space in which God can work. Silence allows us to become better lovers of others as we experience the love of God within us. Richard Foster puts it this way: "Like Jesus, we must go away from people so that we can be truly present when we are with people." Silence develops the spirit of patience within us. It equips us with clarity and purpose as we engage in acts of service and mission within the world.
