Season 5: Episode 12 | For the Sake of Others
Why does Ruth end a book on silence and solitude with a chapter on for sake of others? Listen to find out. Ruth describes her own journey of moving out of silence and solitude and how it transformed her interaction with teenagers. A great discussion of words and why silence and solitude are important for both introverts and extroverts, along with a strong encouragement to not make this practice legalistic. As we close this season, Ruth leaves us with a practice to help us connect with God from the place of our deepest desire.
