Whether alone or in community, we often seek moments of peace to reflect on our lives. With reverent insight, author Richard Gilbert ponders special moments discovered in worship alone and with a congregation.
The first section of this book features personal meditations; the second presents meditations designed for congregational worship. From his "Shirk Ethic" to "Saints, Sinners and Seekers," from "It Isn't Fair - Life, That Is," to "The Divine Is in the Details," from "We Are All More Human Than Otherwise" to "Worthy of This Blind Chance," Gilbert reflects on the breadth and depth of human experience.
Gilbert's meditations have been widely used in a variety of settings. In the Holy Quiet is a valuable resource for individuals and groups. These selections are offered to provide moments of calm in a hectic world.
