What is more eloquent than an impressive silence?...

What is more eloquent than an impressive silence? When we sit in the midst of a great congregation, and all heads are bowed in one beautiful, reverent accord, do we not truly realize more of God's beneficent nearness? This is the moment of our salvation—our uplift into the realm of better thinking. At such moments one may feel the everlasting arms tighten about him with a solicitude that surpasses every earthly kinship. Truth's poetry and song pervade these inspiring moments, and to these we listen, though sometimes unconsciously, and are healed. Communion like this gives a loftier rhythm to our wordless worship, such worship as moves the poet's hand to write immortal verse, or the artist's brush to portray the coming of the Christ.—Cassius M. Loomis.
