Still Saturday: Our Job?

“Maybe it’s our job to incline our hearts toward silence, to head for the slight grace that stillness allows from the noises of our world. Or maybe our job is to disrupt the silence just so, to make some arrival, some gentle voice, some concrete clarity, some step toward reconciling our presence.”

~Dave Harrity in Making Manifest: On Faith, Creativity, and the Kingdom at Hand

In the stillness,


Sandra Heska King - Still Saturday

Welcome to the Still Saturday Community where we pause after a busy week, move in quiet pilgrimage, maybe linger a while in some still place, and soak in the beauty of images and reflect on the depth of sparse words. We’d love for you to join us. Grab the button and link up below. We all love to hear if something especially speaks to your heart, but please don’t feel pressured to comment. Simply take some time to gaze long and drink deep.

    Beautiful photos! Love the quote you shared from the book, which is the 2nd quote this morning I have read from the same book :) Definitely on my “to read” list now! But I love the thought that it is our job to both incline our hearts towards silence and at other times, to disrupt the silence. May I know which He is calling me towards so as not to miss Him. Grateful to have been here this morning. Have a blessed Sunday!
