Blips on the Blogosphere 14

Should We Really Call It a "Quiet" Time? "Quiet times" is a common "Christian-ese" phrase that refers to time one spends alone with God, in the Word and prayer. David Powlison, guest-blogging on Justin Taylor's blog Between Two Worlds, thinks the phrase may not be entirely apt, considering that God may want us to shout rather than be quiet during such times. Interesting reflections and helpful suggestions. See also: Hearing, Praying, and Speaking the Word by Justin Taylor.
