God Does Not Shout
'While being so busy running my own life, I become oblivious to the gentle movements of the spirit of God within me, pointing me in directions quite different from my own. It requires a lot of inner solitude and silence to become aware of these divine movements. God does not shout, scream, or push. The spirit of God is soft and gentle like a small voice or a light breeze.'
--the late Henri Nouwen, S.J., in his book, Here and Now--Living in the Spirit
