A quietness of the heart—hearing God's Word in an "age of distraction"
In a review of the recent book by historian Harry S. Stout entitled The New England Soul, a rather amazing statistic is noted. During the lifetime of the average Puritan in seventeenth-century colonial New England, each man and woman listened to "more than 7,000 sermons requiring some 15,000 hours of concentrated attention." See Kenneth L. Woodward, "When God Had No Competition," Newsweek, October 20, 1986, p. 73 .
The people were hungry to be assured of God's will and purpose. They were struggling to survive, and they knew God would have to be at the center of whatever life they might hope to carve out of the wilderness. Frivolous distractions to the mind and spirit were few.
