City living is busy, stressful, and noisy. It generates a lifestyle of haste with an addiction to quick fixes. It feels impossible to find quiet, to rest, and to think deeply. Our longing is to experience enduring peace, stronger relationships, and a better sense of our unique place in the world. To do so, we must hunger for life as it is meant to be--connected to its Source and maturing into fullness and fruitfulness. This requires that we become familiar with silence as a place to visit and feel at home in. For it is in silence that we encounter ourselves, others, and God in radical ways. Let this volume, movingly told through personal narrative, help you make your way to the land of silence and be amazed at how it impacts your life as you grow in peace, patience, and passion.
