Well, it’s been another busy week, but God has been very good to me through a couple of relationships that I honestly did not realise were key to my life, but clearly are. Have you ever had that happen to you? Some people you’re connected to, are perhaps perceived by you to be on the perifery of your life, but then God uses them to speak deeply and profoundly to you in order to bring a breakthrough.
That’s certainly what happened for me this week, with a man much younger than myself. The arrogance of my age (nearly 45) enabled me to almost write this guy off as having anything of real value to bring to my life, other than to be a work colleague. How wrong I was!
I know of late I’ve made some well intentioned, but ultimately hollow promises to write about some particular topics, but these encounters, the most recent in particular, have set me free in some remarkable ways. So, I promise you, I will write about these things over the next week.
Will you hold me to it? Good!
Anyway, tomorrow is July’s Breathing Space (our monthly quiet day .. a contemplative prayer experience in the monastic tradition), so I figured if you’re like my close friends Phil and Jeanette Beale, who now live and work in Dubai, and you cannot be with us tomorrow, you might like to conduct your own quiet day at some point in the near future, or even orient your schedule to be with us virtually (mystically) by using the liturgy planned for tomorrow to join us in prayer at the appropriate times.
Let me know if you do. I’d love to hear your feedback.
Grab the PDF here. You’ll be seeing it even before those who attend tomorrow’s Breathing Space!
Oh .. and here‘s some extra resources I’ll be distributing tomorrow to help some newcomers engage with the day.
