Easter 39 Still

Be still and know . . .

The temptation in speaking is to think we might wield power with our words (said the blogger).

The temptation in rushing to answers is to think we might clear things up if only we explained it the right way.

The temptation in saying a good word is to think we know what good is.

We might have a clue. We might know some things. We might sometimes be helpful by speaking up.

But even our proclamation of resurrection and new creation will be but useless if they are only adding to the noise.

It is very helpful (to understate) to practice stillness, to learn and to know that we are not God.
