An evocative hour, once a month, in which to be still, and to reconnect with God and life itself.
Hush opens up a powerfully 'still' space, once a month on a Monday night, to help all of us to embody, with dynamic purpose, the words of the psalmist: "Be still and know that I am God!"
We all struggle to be still, of course; yet in a culture stuck on fast-forward, it behoves us, as spiritual leaders (each and every one of us!), to learn and to model how to pause well; to find deeper communion with God; and to let our souls be restored ... both for the sake of ourselves, and the world around us.
Through a creative blend of contemplative prayer, poetry, music, guided reflections and times of stillness and silence, we discover more about what it means to draw more deeply from the Source.
Not just to catch our breath, or de-stress (though Hush does provide a restorative sense of calm) - but so that our daily actions, wherever we find ourselves, gain a clarity, an edge and a poise, through which we may touch the world with God's overflowing love.
