Today, I want to try something new.
Finding God in all things is at the core of Ignatian Spirituality and is rooted in our growing awareness that God can found in every one, in every event, in our histories–even the seemingly bad experiences we have gone through. When we learn to pay more attention to the God that continues to work in our lives and in the world, we become more thankful and reverent, and through this we become more devoted to God, more deeply in love with our Creator.
Today you might want to start the practice of saying “God is here.” This idea I got from UCC pastor Jane E. Vennard who said:
Practice saying “God is here” the next time you are assaulted by your neighbors’ quarrelling, see someone carelessly toss trash from a car, get drenched in an unexpected rainstorm, or bite into a mealy and tasteless apple.
