A Call to Silence

1990s--MID to LATE
Valley Vineyard Church

Silence is one of the most crucial spiritual disciplines. It's not just silence, but silence in the presence of God. Dallas was speaking to the women of Valley Vineyard Church and humorously titled the message, "Let a Woman Be Silent." The  truth is that every person has a deep need to stop all activity and be transformed "in the secret, in the quiet place."

1: A Call to Silence

Silence is one of the most crucial spiritual disciplines. It's not just silence, but silence in the presence of God. Dallas was speaking to the women of Valley Vineyard, his home church, and humorously titled the message, "Let a Woman Be Silent: Drawn Into the Depths." The  truth is that every person has a deep need to stop all activity and be transformed "in the secret, in the quiet place." 

A Call to Silence

Scriptures and Themes Discussed:

  • Not addressing Paul's teaching that women are to be silent in church (1 Cor 14:34), but a level of BEING that goes beyond anything we can say.
  • A level of healing that goes far beyond anything you can say.
  • Making what we sing about in worship the entire substance of our lives.
  • The soul is the deepest part of you and makes all the other parts work together to form one life.
  • We all bring a culture with us. The question we face when we think about transforming the self through being silent before God is receiving a different culture: a culture that is not of this world.
  • We need long periods of time in which we are silent before the Lord.
  • How we can come to live where we worship and to worship where we live.
