On this Good Friday I jump into the fray with humility and a sense of exploration -- of my being and ministry in relation to the world around me, a world that spins and circles the sun as it always has yet almost seems to bulge and split apart at the seams in places (like the poles, melting and warming in threatening ways; in countries like Iraq, Sudan, Chad, Iran, and even the United States -- &etcetera). And so this is a good day to engage in spiritual practice. For me that is meditation and prayer. I contemplate how the pace of change seems to be escalating and what my place is in an evolutionary process that I so want to be part of in a positive way. For we are all part of the evolutionary process whether we are aware of it or not. I meditate today on how to be an intentional part of this process.
My prayer for this Good Friday is that, in the face of death, we awaken to the incredible gift of life that we are blessed with – and renew our efforts to live life to its fullest.
I think of all the wasted moments I’ve spent even this day (and this probably includes the learning curve of starting a blog). May I renew my commitment to live more fully.
