And on the eighth day... humanity started messing with God's good creation, and it's never been the same since. Welcome to our experimental board for test runs of Shipmates' weird and wonderful creations. Who knows - this month's test board could become next year's new special interest board. Shipmates who wish to submit a topic for a trial run here should polish that idea, recruit a few Shipmates as co-hosts, and then pitch it in The Styx. See the policies and procedures thread for details.
The Quiet Zone
Welcome to The Quiet Zone, a place to explore the diversity and perception of different kinds of silence in everyday life and in worship; to look at its effects and influence, to think a little more deeply about what it is, what it can do for you, and to become aware of forms in which this is already integrated into life. How do you define silence? Do we use silence and grow through it, or simply survive it? How might we learn to be silent? Or is there no place for silence in today’s increasingly busy and interconnected world? Contributions on all aspects of this potentially wide-ranging topic are welcome.
