Nan Merrill, founder and ...
Nan Merrill, founder and editor of Friends of Silence from her introduction to February's issue.
Sacred Art of Living Center
by Nan C. Merrill
...Merrill, the editor of Friends of Silence newsletter, has led retreats, worked with inner-city parishes, and been involved with prison ministry for many years.She
has reworked the Book of Psalms in a loving, contemplative manner, which betrays none of the book's original vigor or essence.Rather, in a mode that is fresh and eloquent, Merrill's psalms evoke that deep sense of reverence and soul-stirring dialog with the divine that is often eclipsed by the fear of divine wrath in the original.Merrill
has carefully crafted these verses to rekindle for contemporary readers the timeless mystery of divine love, using language that is not constrained by gender or judgment.

Welcome to Friends of Silence | Friends of Silence
Nan Merrill, a woman of wisdom and compassion, began Friends of Silence in Detroit in 1987 as an urban contemplative community welcoming individuals of all faiths and cultures.
We have grown from 40 to an international community at large of over 6,000 pray-ers.
We are linked in the Silence, in heart-prayer, and in friendship to many religious and spiritual communities as well as the various F.O.S. groups that are emerging in prisons, businesses, and community centers throughout the United States and around the world.
