Who wouldn't want to read a book written by an Scandi man who looks like this? 'Silence in an Age of Noise' is written by Erling Kagge; a Norwegian explorer, lawyer, politician, entrepreneur, publisher and author. Kagge is famous for being the first person to complete the "three poles challenge" of reaching the North and South poles and the summit of Mt Everest.
After hearing a radio interview with Kagge and reading his book I was inspired to write a series of short devotional reflections on the importance of silence for staff briefings at my college. Even though Kagge does not write from a Christian point of view, this work still has value in informing us of the necessity and challenge of finding silence in our busy, urbanised, technological world. Silence that is indeed a spiritual practice for Christians and the stillness the Holy Spirit uses to enable us to hear God. The devotions I will be posting in coming months are entitled:
Silence and Us
Silence and Noise
Silence and Technology
Silence and God
About this site
"Meditations & Musings" is my humble attempt to share what I have found useful in ministry in an Australian Lutheran School setting. It contains chapels, devotions and other resources I have written, used and adapted in my K-12 school context. If you would like to also share your ideas, resources or start a conversation about mission and ministry in your church- school location, feel free to contact me.
