Question for reflection:
As we begin the Advent season I am reminded of The Practice of the Presence of God – the book by Brother Lawrence which tells of his journey to so completely permeate his life with prayer–that he is in constant communion with God.
What is one simple step you could take to slow down and deepen your experience of God’s presence?
Prayer for the day:
Glorious God! As One who knows us well, help us repair to your mountain — that space where we can breathe in who you are and listen at your feet. May we hearken to your soft whispers of guidance. Help us to be awake to possibilities that weren’t obvious before.
~ Randi Rowan, Program Assistant, Congregational Life Ministries
