In Season 5: Invitation to Solitude and Silence, Steve Wiens and Ruth Haley Barton will walk through Ruth’s book by the same name. Join us for a rich conversation, and grab a copy of the book to take a deeper dive into solitude and silence. Episode 1: Beyond Words finds us walking with Elijah in the wilderness with a bounty on his head right after Mount Carmel and the best altar call ever. Ruth’s book, Invitation to Solitude and Silence, was written 14 years ago – a lot has changed and not necessarily for the better. Distraction is an even bigger problem in our modern day. In this episode, we answer the question about what we would do if we are not scrolling in line at Chipotle. We end by beginning – beginning to practice solitude and silence.
