Wendell Berry speaking in Frankfort, Indiana

Whatever we do, in conscious loving union with God and "what is," is prayer -- and the best prayer, for sure.
The problem, of course, is teaching Western wordy and over-thinking people how not to talk and not to think so much; it is usually not thinking anyway, but reactive commentary, and often narcissistic commentary, on some recent or upcoming situation. Oh, how long it took me to see that! Now it is obvious. This, of course, is very humiliating for people to admit, especially educated people and "proper" clergy persons. We really do like our thinking and our talking. It gives our mind and our mouth a job to do.
I love the quote from our American sage, Wendell Berry: "The mind that is not baffled, is not employed." The spiritual task of the mind is to be perpetually baffled, and baffled into silence, along with occasional utterances that come from such inner silence where there is nothing to oppose, promote or resist.
