Quiet can be hard to come by. Even if there are no sounds outside, there are often the distractions of busy lives broadcasting 24/7 in our heads. That’s why I appreciate this quote by Evelyn Underhill
“Try to arrange things so that you can have a reasonable bit of quiet every day and do not be scrupulous and think it selfish to make a decided struggle for this.”
The Evelyn Underhill Association is sponsoring the 20th Annual Evelyn Underhill “Call to God: A Day of Quiet Reflection” which will be held on Saturday, June 13, 2009 at Cathedral College on the grounds of the Washington National Cathedral.
