Silence is …..calming actually

alisonYou may have heard of Antony Gormley’s One & Other project- the fourth plinth on Trafalgar Square occupied by anybody who entered the draw. The idea is that any man or women can bid to spend an hour on the plinth to do whatever they like. The whole things is broadcast live on the Internet and Sky Arts. In the early hours of Sunday morning this week (2am to be precise) my friend Alison Wooding occupied the plinth with an hour of virtually silent prayer. It was an amazing experience. She started off being heckled by bystanders who wanted her to do something and entertain them, and yet after about 25 minutes or so the peaceful presence of God was felt across Trafalgar Square as people stopped, stared and reflected on what it means to be quiet in the presence of God and for the sake of others. Silent prayer caused silence to descend on one of the busiest parts of London amongst  clubbers and night owls. As the whole things has been filmed, why not set aside  one hour to re-live Alison’s experience and offer up those in your community for prayer for one hour today. Be a fourth plinther for prayer right here, right now wherever you are- you don’t need a pedestal for prayer!

    Silence it not only calming it is key. When we purpose ourselves to be quiet God Speaks.

  2. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a lot of unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any solutions to help reduce content from being stolen? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

  3. Hey not to set off topic but can anyone give me a review of. New York Car Insurance Reform 295 Greenwich St, New York, NY 10007 (646) 351-0824 They’re just down the block from me. I was wondering once they were a good insurance agency. I need to find coverage, it is the law you know, but I have to have a good price price plus I’d prefer friendly service.
