Isaiah 12:2-6 / Amos 8:4-12 / 2 Corinthians 9:1-15
By Jan Aijian
This gal’s voice, in that exquisite space, gave me chills. I wish I could carry a tune. But I also wish I was a surfer, a professional Flamenco dancer, a mountain climber and a violinist. I’ll stop there, the list is too long. I’m learning to be enough right here, now. Emmanuel coming to me, has been a glacial moving tsunami of increasing wonder.
I end with a prayer from Fr. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin:
Since, by virtue of my consent, I shall have become a living particle of the Body of Christ, all that affects me must in the end help on the growth of the total Christ. Christ will flood into and over me, me and my cosmos.
.... May my acceptance be ever more complete, more comprehensive, more intense!
May my being, in its self-offering to you, become ever more open and more transparent to your influence!
And may I thus feel your activity coming ever closer, your presence growing ever more intense, everywhere around me.
