"All of us want to live life to its fullest - God wants that for us as well. Sometimes we think living life to the full means cramming everything possible into it. So often we have so much going on in our lives and our world becomes one of chaos, noise and clutter - and we are none the happier for it. Is this what God intended for us? Does it have to be so complicated? The answer in a word, 'no.' We are the ones who make life complicated; relationship with God is intended to be simple – childlike simplicity." (Deacon and Fellow Pilgrim)

“In the present “information age,” we are seeing even less silence, for not only do we have televisions blaring from the moment we walk into our homes, the internet has introduced noise of a different nature, on command at any time. Hi-tech gadgets fill our waking moments with music, shutting out the sounds of nature—birds chirping, the sound of wind, the lapping of waves on a beach.” (Abbot Tryphon)

“We live in such a busy world, in such a world with all kinds of information, promises, and challenges. These words of Mark, “Jesus Christ is the Son of God,” maybe have lost some of their power to transform lives because we live in mainstream America. We live with so much clutter and chaos in our lives. For believers living in this twenty-first century, the secularization process has reached an alarming stage.” (Father John Zeyack)

“Our hearts harden over time as we grow more distant from ourselves and allow the busyness of the world to consume our attention.” (Christine Valters Paintner)
