Reflection of the week
Posted in Faith
Late autumn: the beauty of leaves turning red and gold, the sense of nature slowing down and preparing to rest. Let us attend to the invitations of autumn, to the moments when God invites us to live more gently, and to rest.
For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven. – Ecclesiastes 3:1
What “season” am I in? How does the rhythm of creation find its echo in the rhythm of my life? What might God be inviting of me?
I pause and listen to my mind, my spirit, my body, to my circumstances, to the whispers of the Spirit.
This week I will notice the sacred rhythm of life, and invite others to join me in it.
Jesus, you knew the time for action, and the time for rest and prayer. Grant me the wisdom and the grace to live at the rhythm you invite of me, the rhythm of all God's creation. Amen.
