feed your spirit
Soul hungry? Feed it here.
Ponder: For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven. Ecc. 3:1
Some days I see the world through the prison bars of my own time. When has the beauty or tragedy of world news or the tender daily life of my next-door neighbor been dimly perceived and seen only through the stark clock of my obligations?
Pray: God, give me a time for the babies and a time for those who are dying, a time for the gardeners and a time for the green-activists, a time for boycotts and a time for negotiations. I have my own weeping and laughing times down pat – open my heart to the dancing, embracing, losing, silence time of others close to me and far away. Amen.

I have been attending a new church. I love the worship, and the people are nice enough, but I am having a hard time getting past the surface and finding real friends. As an introvert, coffee hour terrifies me. When I do manage to go, I only make it about 10 feet into the parish hall, and give it about five wrenching minutes before I flee. It pains me to see all those people laughing and having fun, and having to feel on the outside of things.
