THOSE WHO HEAR THE WORD OF GOD
A friend of mine once said she would like her tombstone to read:
This, for me, captures these readings, as does
All of today’s readings speak of listening well to God’s voice, seeking truth, living just lives and being humble.
In our world today, in the U.S. with elections coming, we need
to listen well and seek the truth.
It is best seen in the little ways we live and encounter one another daily. A student recently said, as a reflection on her clinical experience, “my patients taught me so much about myself. I grew while serving them”. Another student told a story of how she had to advocate for a patient who needed some more extensive therapy.
We each are invited in our own way to serve the needs of others:
to listen to, to hear, to serve! It is a blessing. It requires though
that we listen to and own our God-given gifts and to use them. Our
world is going to be changed for the better…and for the good
of all, as each one of us owns our own truth and gifts and gives
them to others.
