Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Anthony De Mello has a story in “One Minute Wisdom” that puts human wisdom and natural loss into perspective.
The visiting historian was disposed to be argumentative. “Do not our efforts change the course of human history?” He demanded.
“Oh yes, they do,” said the Master.
“And have not our human labors changed the earth?”
“They certainly have,” said the Master.
“Then why do you teach that human effort is of little consequence?” .
“Because when the wind subsides, the leaves still fall,” said the Master.
See Psalm 22 for further reflection.
Prayers: For Paula, Sean, and Alex Smith as well as all the others who mourn the passing of Chris Smith. That we might learn to be still this Lenten season.
For your soul care. My good friend Terry Luce passed this along to me . https://www.facebook.com/ericclapton/videos/581976972502294/
Still in one peace,
Pastor David J. Jensen
