I need a God who is with us always, everywhere, in the deepest depths as well as the highest heights. It is when things go wrong, when good things do not happen, when our prayers seem to have been lost, that God is most present. We do not need the sheltering wings when things go smoothly. We are closest to God in the darkness, stumbling along blindly.”Madeleine L’Engle“Doubt isn’t the opposite of faith; it is an element of faith.”Paul Tillich“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart. And try to love the questions themselves.”Rainer Maria RilkePrayWise, creating, and loving God –what a delight it isto be in your presenceand to recognize your wondrous touchin all the world.Open us to discern youin usualand unusal places,and to celebrate your unfolding presencein our daily lives.Amen.
