CURRENT ISSUE

In the Silence

This month, contributors to the magazine converse with silence.

In our Community Catechesis section, Phil Barnett writes about the Christian contemplative tradition and introduces readers to spiritual practices of silence. Kirsten Pinto-Gfroerer meditates on silence amid suffering—on “trusting silence” which may sit with pain. Allison Abra and Matthew Bowman are interviewed about St John’s College’s efforts to house Ukrainian refugees and the gift of enlivenment that the college’s guests have brought amidst the quiet isolation of the pandemic. Finally, Theo Robinson challenges readers to consider “silent voices,” those persons whose voices are suppressed through means subtle and direct, and consider how we might speak up for all.
