We welcome our Guest Speaker Karen Langston.
– Do you find your mind is on auto pilot? For example, while on your way to work, do you find you drove to Wegmans by mistake instead?
– Is your mind “preoccupied” by many things at the same time? If so, how can you be responding to the needs of others or maybe even the nudging of a quiet God?
We think we are wired to live in the present, future and past at the same time. But in fact, only God can do that. We need to be tuning in to Today, to the little child by your side, to the beauty of our surroundings and yes, into God.
To quote Moira, speaking to her husband Peter Banning, in the movie Hook, “We have a few special years with our children, when they’re the ones that want us around. After that you’re going to be running after them for a bit of attention. It’s so fast Peter. It’s a few years, and it’s over. And you are not being careful. And you are missing it.”
What are you doing today? May I suggest being present to those around you. BE in today. You just may find the presence of GOD in everything and everyone around you.
Enjoy the sermon.
