#advent2012 blog 4 – noise

todays advent reading was John 1 1-5 which statrs with this.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God”

this struck me as i had been reading Kosuke Koyamam’s calssic Waterbuffalo Theology, as you do, I had been sturck by the observation of buddhist monk from thialand on this passge.

“My friend. This is quite a noisy religion.”

chrisitnaity is based on words and noise, at least the western forms are, with the notable exception of the society of friends perhaps, (the quakers)
I wonder where all that noise gets us.
I wonder if seperating the signal from the noise wouldbe a useful exercise and what that would involve?

I wonder if i should seek in relation to noise, seeks to do less and be more.
what would that look like
