Nancy Thomas: Quaker business and the silence of God -
I believe that God speaks to his people, that he reveals his will. And I know that this sometimes takes time, especially as we emphasize the community nature of discernment. During the year I’ve occasionally taken God to task, saying, “OK. So what is it? Tell us. Show us your plan. It’s time.” But for some reason, God is not speaking clearly to us... But even in the middle of all this, I’ve sensed the presence of God. While silent, God has not been absent. - Martin Kelley
