Finding Peace in Quiet Time
by Lib Astin

When I learned that the Covenant chapel would be open for prayer during the season of Lent this year, I immediately remembered another Chapel at another time. It was the year 1951, after my graduation from college, when I was serving an internship in the Clinical Laboratory at Charlotte Memorial Hospital. It was then a small yellow-brick building with a small, dimly-lit chapel just inside the door. Every morning I would walk from my family home in Dilworth and visit that chapel to start my day. This established a life – long practice of finding the Peace of Christ in quiet time.
