“Be still and know that I am God” [Ps 46:10]
Tom McGrath and I have by no means abandoned our First Annual People For Others Blog-alogue, but we have put it on pause for the next week or so because Tom is doing something vastly more important. It says a lot about a man (and about the company that employs him. Sorry, couldn’t resist…) that he takes 8 days to go off on a silent retreat to reflect upon his life and his vocation as a publisher. Please join me in praying for Tom this week. I know that he will keep us all in his prayers (because I’ve already begged him to do so.)
How will the rest of us find a moment of “retreat” each day this week? Take ten deep breaths and give thanks to God? A reflective cup of coffee? Turn the radio off on the way home from work to just be with God for a while? If you want to do it, you’ll find a way.
