“…[I]t’s an enormous act of faith to believe that if you start listening, you will hear something; or that if you enter solitude,
you will find intimacy; or that when you are silent you are not going to be dead silent…
It is an act of faith that there is a God who loves us.”
― Henri Nouwen, Beloved
