Today’s post is a beautiful reflection compiled by the Leadership Conference of Women Religious. Spend a few moments today with scripture, song and poetry as we invite the Spirit in.
‘It’s Where You Need to Be’
Reflection for Week of June 15, 2020
Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it. ~ Jeremiah 6: 16
As we listen to the cries of the world surrounding us each day, we ask the Spirit to show us the path we must take in our response.

Just Beyond Yourself
Half a step
and the rest
There is a road
When you see
the two sides
at that far horizon
and deep in
of your own
it’s the road
how you know.
need to be.
~David Whyte, from The Bell and the Blackbird
For Your Reflection:
Our call in these times includes working to see the deeper invitation that this challenging time is providing. How might we be conscious of the transformation occurring within ourselves, our communities, the nation, and the global community as we live through this time?
~ How would you name the road that is beckoning you these days, the road you feel compelled to follow?
~ What first step might you take to move you forward on the path to where you need to be?
Glory to God whose power, working in us, can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine. Amen. — Ephesians 3:20
