This Place Apart

MERCIFUL AND LOVING GOD,
I come seeking quiet communion with you.
In this place apart from confusion and stress,
grant me stillness of heart
and quietness in thy presence.
Amen.

– Rueben P. Job and Norman Shawchuck

It has begun (again – and again) starting at 8:23AM today, moving to meet some “mates", “blokes”, or “Kakis” depending how one wants to refer them as.  Or a simple, spiritual companions or friends would suffice.

A brief farewell after that, followed by some space before meeting the BLC fellow “gardeners” to work on some ministry soil and cultivation.

Things as usual are always lined up.  Burdens and blessings comes in different shapes and sizes.  It’s not going to go away soon.

But before jumping in again, good to step back, sit down, breathe, pause and enter inner quietness.

So say we all.
