Episcopal priest and author Ian Cron says, "The future of the Church is silence. ... I think we're going to become so hungry for silence in community.
"Mother Theresa said that 'God's first language is silence, and everything else is a bad translation.' And I think where we have done spiritual violence to people is we've robbed them of the primary place in which an encounter with God can take place in community, which is in silence with each other."
