Leaning in

At the Lenten worship service last night, we were encouraged to listen to the reading and to note any phrase or word that might resonate, might offer some particular sustenance for us.

And as often happens for me, I slid into the reading with one focused ear; the other, poised and leaning toward a kind of auditory white noise, that sweet, elusive place behind closed eyes.

And this came through like a single bell-tone: Find the sacred in the ordinary; find
the sacred
in
the ordinary.

Indeed.

  2. Absolutely, and too, the attentive, gracious hospitality being offered by Ranjan and the employee. Transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary!
