Life Moments

July 30, 2021

Life is fragile. Life can be challenging. Life provides opportunities for reflection. Life can, at times, be challenging. In ministry and in life itself such reflections can overwhelm. In cemeteries, in war zones, in hospitals, and in daily ministry, I am often challenged to keep on going when I am overwhelmed or exhausted. Those reflective moments have been challenging lately. Lately there has been so much going on with my Dad’s health concerns, with the pandemic, and in ministry.

Thomas Merton said the following in his book, New Seeds of Contemplation. Every moment and every event of every man’s life on earth plants something in his soul. The challenge is to process and accept those moments, while allowing the Spirit to work in the midst of it all.
