Meditations: “Let us enter into a spirit of meditation.”
Much of our human struggle is with what we do not know or understand. It is often difficult not to want answers -- or even more difficult, not to think we have them already. May we experience what we do not know not as an individual failure but as an invitation to community. May we seek not the true answers so much as the true questions, knowing that true questions make of our lives meaningful even if sometimes restless journeys. May we be grateful for the restless voices in our communities.
Let us take a few moments of silence to listen for the restless voices within ourselves.
May we be good company to one another in our questions and our journey. So may it be.
