The Blessing of Silence - Mama Maggie 

By Mindy Caliguire - Friday, August 12, 2011

Today at The Global Leadership Summit before she kissed the floor in blessing, Mama Maggie shared this with the crowd:

Silence your body to listen to your words
Silence your tongue to listen to your thoughts
Silence your thoughts to listen to your heart beating
Silence your heart to listen to your spirit,
Silence your spirit you listen to his spirit.

In silence you leave many and be with the one.

Mama Maggie Gobran is a Nobel Peace Prize nominee this year who has spent 20 years serving the poorest of the poor. A Coptic Christian from a prominent Egyptian family, she taught computer science and lectured at Cairo University. But following a conviction from God, she started a ministry to serve the poor in her city.
