I love this piece from SSJE. It reminds us to be still as we listen. It is not only OK but it is necessary to be still. And listen. Joan Alayne Stevens
Listen to me, Jesus says. Listen with still posture and eyes closed. Listen while walking or letting yourself dance. Listen looking up gazing at bright green-leafed trees. Listen kneeling in soil to tend plants springing to life. Stop to smell the flowers and listen. Jesus the good shepherd has so many good things to say to you. Be still and listen.
-Br. Luke Ditewig
