Thought for the day, from my cousin

My cousin Linda Jennings Wilk posted this on facebook.

"We are blessed to be gathered as a people who are called to listen deeply to the Word: as it was spoken to those who came long before us, who ministered and wrote what was told to them, as it comes to us when we are gathered in worship and waiting for revelation, and we must especially be alert to remember that God will continue to reveal the Truth to us ongoing, so that nothing will be set in stone. Just as our lives continue to unfold, so God is still speaking."

Your comments are invited.

A lot is to be said of the "living" Word. Key here, though, is to listen. Our lives are so filled with business that we rarely take the time to listen. We won't hear what God has to say to us if we don't listen. Mayhaps my Advent will be a discipline in listening.

A good idea, Barbara. I hope to have six days of listening before the Quiet Day on the 3rd of December. A time for more listening.
