Brought the silence to me

seasick steve.jpgI was watching a programme of American Folk music,subtitled “Hollerers, Stompers and Old-Time Ramblers!” It was fronted by the wonderful Seasick Steve (the programme is here if you are in the UK).
Seasick Steve is a natural story teller whether he is talking or singing, but there was one particular phrase he used that really caught my attention. As he introduced Diana Jones he said that he’d been listening to her rehearse earlier and she had “brought the silence to me!
I loved this phrase! It struck me as a great phrase for when we connect with God in Worship (by whatever media that is), “It brought the slience to me”
