We celebrated Ash Wednesday together in our chapel this past Wednesday, kicking off our Lenten journey with a focus on our being “Busy.” We are all busy, for sure. But it doesn’t have to be that way all of the time. We sometimes make conscious efforts to keep ourselves busy…sometimes to the point of dysfunction. Many times we jam our calendars so full of things that don’t really matter and fail to leave time for things that really do.
Our journey to Jerusalem with Jesus this year calls us to make our faith journey a priority in the busy lives we lead. The theme between now and Easter will be “Busy: Reconnecting with an unhurried God.” It asks us to enter into a time of reflection and confession that we sometimes fail to find the “center” of our lives, and have a need to slow down and re-evaluate the things that are really important and the things that are secondary.
I hope you will join us each Sunday morning, making time for worship and community in your busy life. If that is impossible, be sure to take some time out of your day to become “un-busy.” Taking just a moment to be by yourself with your God, can make all the difference in your day!
May you find the “quiet center” in your life today!
