In this episode Riley and Christopher discuss the contemplative value of stillness.  While we’ve referenced meditation multiple times, this means of approaching God in stillness offers us the opportunity to connect with the divine by quieting the sensory processes and becoming aware of autonomic processes such as breathing and heartbeat.  So what are we to learn from this?  Could it be that chasing answers all the time has become a distraction to communion and revelatory knowing, which is not always the same as propositional knowing?
