1 Kings 19:1-18

This is the still, small voice passage, the 'daughter of a voice', the whisper, the sound of silence.


I'm sure religion is changing but one sign of it doing so is that the loud voices have gone. the church understands itself differently, not having to scream its position, or use the loudest voices to proclaim it's message. Rather the church has found more often a 'still, small voice'. People listen more to a still small voice.


The loud ones entertain. The loud ones try to be persuasive in their strength. Still, small ones have all the integrity they need already. They just are. They are not out to win an argument but just get on with things.


And when a world shouts at each other and tweets abuse, there is another voice below the clamour that only those with compassion here; a voice that speaks love, peace, truth. Often it isn't heard, but it doesn't need to be heard. These are living words, not electronic ones and as such they become acts of faith in a world that has lost hers.


(We are invited to sung evensong at All Saints Episcopal Church on Sunday evening at 6.30)
