Our Sound is Our Wound Contemplative Listening to a Noisy World - The Archbishop of Canterbury's Lent Book

by Lucy Winkett

Our Sound is Our Wound Contemplative Listening to a Noisy World - The Archbishop of Canterbury's Lent Book Synopsis

How do we listen for the voice of God within the soundscapes of our lives and how do we find our own voice? Our lives are lived against the backdrop of an internal and external soundscape. The sounds, noises and music with which we are surrounded in modern life have spiritual implications. There is also a soundtrack within us that plays constantly through memory, dreams, anxiety or thought. What are these soundscapes, and how do we listen for the voice of God within them. How too do we find our own voice? These questions bring together the previous academic interest (history and sociology) and the present, practical life (public ritual, music, and public speaking) of an author who is sensitive to the cadences of modern life, and reflects on this through the prism of Scripture and the tradition.
