Being Quiet – September 29

Do you ever want to get away from all of the distractions of our electronic age? If so you may want to go to Greenbank, West Virginia. It is known as the “the quietest town in America”. It is also home to the world’s largest steerable radio telescope. The telescope needs “quiet” to “listen” to naturally occurring radio waves. A 13,000 square-mile is established to prevent electronic interference to the telescope’s extreme sensitivity. The intentional quiet allows the scientists to hear the “music of the spheres.” Did you know that we are encouraged in the Bible to take time to limit the distractions in our own lives and listen? In the Bible in the book of Psalms it reads, “Be still, and know that I am God.” Are you taking time to be still and are you listening?
