My grade school years were quite memorable at St. Christopher's. It was a Catholic school back in the day when nuns still wore those long blue garments with the flying nun hood. One thing you never wanted in your life was a call to the office of our principal Sister St. Anne. Over the years she had developed an efficiently swift swing with the blister paddle. You know the one. The board with the carved handle and holes drilled from top to bottom. Just before impact, as you were holding your ankles, you could hear the air whitling through the holes. Justice delivered. Sister St. Anne is one thing. God is another.
That's a pretty weak analogy, but I'm not clever enough to come up with anything better. We're talking about God being eternal today. That's always a tough concept to wrap our head around but it's an aspect of God's being that we need to consider, particularly when life seems overwhelming.
....can't help noticing people who are full of life. God has no dead friends. This week we're talking about the Living God.
The world at large seems to be falling apart on every front. And the world between our own two feet sometimes feels the same. Life's daily necessities alone, even when things are going pretty smoothly, can become overwhelming. Now add to that the unexpected. In the end, the most important way to keep it all together and to reach the finish line is to make a real effort to stop. Listen and see what we mean.
