One of my favourite moments in a Unitarian service is the meditation. I love entering into quietness communally, sharing the space with others. The silence is not the absence of sound, but the rich silence of life, the breathing, rustling murmurs of people simply being together. Stillness is increasingly rare in our common lives, I cherish it every Sunday. I also try to spend a few minutes each day sitting in my backyard, quietly participating in the life surrounding me; I find it restorative.
Unitarians honour the stillness which reminds us of our connections to the whole.
So does Pinky the cat.
