An Ordinary Cross Among Trees,“Ignatius Retreat Center trail

“We make such a fuss about ‘seeking God.’ We’re anxious about so many things… Are we doing it right? …Which church congregation will best ‘feed us spiritually’? Probably the best thing we can do is to relax, take a deep breath, stop thinking about what we want or need, and forget about it. Seeking God, that is. Instead, we might wait, and begin to silently ponder the ways in which God may already have been seeking us, all along, in the faulty, scary stuff of our ordinary lives.”

(Amazing Grace, 299)
