We begin with a simple idea. It goes like this: God speaks as softly as possible and as loudly as necessary.
Good morning, God. You come speaking to us with this new day. You speak softly as we try to listen but you are speaking as loudly as necessary. Sometimes we say, “What did you say? We can’t hear you.” And you speak again softly as possible but as loudly as necessary. You are with us this day. You spoke softly and gently as the cold air blew in our face early this morning. You will speak as loudly as necessary in the instructions of our teachers.
