The last few weeks we have been focusing on ways in which to encounter the Divine Presence. A few weeks ago, we talked about encountering God in the beauty of the created world all around us. The last couple of weeks the focus has been on encountering the Divine in our communal worship experience.
This week, we will engage in a very simple contemplative practice that can facilitate our encounter with the Divine in our everyday activities, a practice that can be traced back to the Pythagoreans in the 6th century BCE, the Stoics in the 3rd century BCE, and in the teachings of the 16th century Christian theologian Ignatius of Loyola who insisted that God is active, personal and—above all—present to us at every moment.
Bring a pencil and paper Sunday morning and prepare to seek and encounter the Holy Presence expressing in each of our lives. I can’t wait to engage in this practice with you! Many blessings, Linda
