Friday – Harmony with God
Submitted by westend_admin on Fri, 2011-03-18 09:44
We all know that the human spirit is a fragile thing. There are times when our spirit languishes and is broken. Difficult situations can take their toll. We stop seeing the world with optimism or possibility, and we lose inspiration for what could be. But the remnant of God within our spirit is never extinguished. It may seem so faint as not to be there, yet it remains waiting to be discovered. The Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, says it this way: “we are, by the very nature of our humanity, naturally attuned to the reality of God…. But we have jarred the harmonies in various ways. We are out of tune.” And so “our task in growing in the life of the spirit is to try to recover that attunement.” This is the spiritual quest we all share.
