Quiet Language


Quiet Language—I think of this as the language of touch—a way of communicating that we often don’t pay much attention to.

A couple of Sundays ago, I sat in church behind a family that revealed a sermon all their own. There was a mom, a dad, two young boys, and a daughter who looked like the oldest child. As the church service went on, I noticed the mom gently stroking her daughter’s shoulder without even thinking about it. It was a slight touch, but it said so much to me. It showed love, care, and comfort, all without saying a word.


From the daughter’s point of view, this simple touch appeared very comforting. It seemed to have made her daughter feel safe and supported, almost like her mom was whispering, “I’m here for you,” or “You’re safe with me.”

From the daughter’s point of view, this simple touch appeared very comforting. It seemed to have made her daughter feel safe and supported, almost like her mom was whispering, “I’m here for you,” or “You’re safe with me.” I think of this as the language of touch—a way of communicating that we often don’t pay much attention to. During the quiet, thoughtful parts of the service, this touch helped strengthen their bond, reminding the daughter of their close connection and the peace they find together in their community of faith. 

 

This soft touch told me a lot about mom. It showed that she cares and knows what her touch means to her daughter. This gesture shows she’s a protective and caring mom, ensuring her daughter feels loved and supported, especially in church.

 

The way the mom touched her daughter also shows her empathy—her ability to understand and share her feelings with another. It’s a way for her to show comfort and reassurance, quietly demonstrating her deep, natural connection with her daughter. The mom also instilled important values such as unity, support for one another, and commitment to their faith, emphasizing their shared lives.


This mom’s touch helped build not just an emotional but also a spiritual connection. It’s a simple but profound way to show care, understanding, and a sense of belonging.

I was touched by this unprepared yet powerful sermon.

 

How about you? Have you ever considered how your quiet and simple touch can be such a powerful but quiet language?

 

Watch for the blind spots.
