Michael K. Marsh is a priest in the Episcopal Church serving a parish in the Diocese of West Texas. He blogs at Interrupting the Silence, part of the CCblogs network.

The 14th-century Sufi poet and mystic, Rumi, wrote, “Return to the root of the root of yourself.” His words remind me that I often live on the periphery or circumference of life, disconnected from the root of my being and existence. To “return to the root of the root” of myself ultimately means returning to God. For me that returning necessarily involves intentional silence.
