Being open to,
aware of,
engaged with
what is called for
in each situation as it arises,
positions us

beyond the simple service
of what needs to happen here/now
in light of the circumstances
that form and shape the moment,
letting that carry us into the next moment,
and all the moments that follow.

It is also drama-free.

I cannot imagine why
it has not caught on by now.

I'm retired, and still finding my way--but now, I don't have to pretend that I know what I'm doing. I retired after 40.5 years as a minister in the Presbyterian Church USA, serving churches in Louisiana, Mississippi and North Carolina. I graduated from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, in Austin, Texas, and Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. My wife, Judy, and I have three daughters and five granddaughters within about twenty minutes from where we live--and are enjoying our retirement as much as we have ever enjoyed anything.
