While on vacation with my family at an Alpine pasture in Austria, we needed to take a late-night drive down a mountain road in a van. Our purpose was to get to the railway station in the town of Zell am See to welcome some visitors.
While I was driving there, I had a look at the sky above. It was bright with stars. I stopped the vehicle, turned off the engine, and switched the lights off. That moment, I witnessed a kind of silence I had never felt before. The sparkling of stars added to the experience, leaving a deep inward peace. Remembering this opportunity we had to bear witness to such a moment has stayed with me ever since and made me recognize an inseparable connection between God and the surrounding calm.
