One Word: Silence


When Zechariah came out, he could not speak to the people, and they realised that he had seen a vision in the sanctuary. He kept motioning to them and remained unable to speak.
Luke 1.22

  • Zechariah was rendered silent because an angel had told him his wife, Elizabeth, was expecting a child – John the Baptist - long after it should have been possible for this childless couple. Have you ever been so stunned you couldn’t speak?
  • How do you feel about silence? Do you seek it out or avoid it?
  • What might it be like not to be able to communicate?
  • Zechariah could listen during this time, but not speak. What might be good about this? Do you speak too much and listen too little?
