March 27: Manage the Present, Create the Future

Day 36


The classroom of silence allows serenity, courage, and wisdom to direct the actions of our lives.


Spend 10 minutes today in the classroom of silence. If you can, do it in your church or chapel.

If you’re reading Perfectly Yourself, read pages 196–200 (paperback version) or pages 204–208 (hardcover version).


The Serenity Prayer

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.

Are you best at silence, stillness, or solitude?
