I’m convinced that most of us have a hard time doing any of these things. As a result the precious of gift of life is passing through our hands, moment by moment, and we’re squandering it watching reruns, eating junk food, shopping for stuff we don’t need, or any one of countless other forms of triviality. What if we got outside instead? Or prayed? Or gave ’til it hurts and we find a joy we didn’t know existed? What if we learn the most from those who seem weak, but are actually towers of strength? What if we jumped in the lake?
What if we paid attention; and became astonished; and told others about it?
We’d be changed: body, soul, spirit, life.
I write in order to pay attention and be astonished – believing that this is critical to becoming a whole person: body, soul, and spirit. Here’s hoping you’ll join me and contribute to the conversation.
I write in order to help people live well – especially those called to serve and bless others, people like leaders, pastors, parents, spouses, neighbors.
Who else am I?
