paying attention to here and now
Our church is launching a simple theme this fall:
These words from a recent message keep echoing through my mind:
The past is not ours to change.
The future is not ours to see.
There is only one call that God extends.
It is here.
And it is now.
–Rev. J. Douglas Paterson
Makes me wonder, regardless of our faith tradition:
Are we too caught up in the past, future, or self to notice what’s happening here and now?
What are we doing here and now to make the world a better place?
How do I discern what I should be doing, here and now?
Listening for that still small voice in the cacophony (or symphony?) of the world. . .
