The Sound of Silence

If you look closely at the picture you'll see that none of the 130 high school and college students or faculty are talking. We're having a monastic meal in complete silence. Even my friends' baby waited to whimper until most people had left. I went back for seconds and dessert so I could soak it all in. One student wrote a note to the instigator, our chaplain Janet Munn: "This is the coolest experience I've ever had." I think we all felt closer to the Lord and, ironically, to each other. We were communicating on deeper levels.
