A Sister Reflects - Reflexión de una Hermana



"My first attempt at rain drops" by Ben Angel via Flicker creative commons.
Do you ever enter really important times with some apprehension? Maybe it's a job interview, a heavy conversation you need to have with a friend, or an important family get together. You want everything to go well. You hope there won't be painful conflict. You hope something good that you might not have even imagined can come to pass. But first you have to show up. 

We have a General Chapter coming up in a few short weeks. That's a very large meeting held every six years during which we make decisions for the future and elect new leadership. We've been planning and talking for quite a while, but we are also praying for the Spirit to guide us. 

When you "show up" for something really important, and you are a person of faith, or a group based on your faith, you know it's bigger than you and all your plans. Certainly, God is a part of all the preparation and reflecting, but you also know that the Spirit can enter and produce an outcome that you never even dreamed of. God asks us both to prepare and to hold everything lightly. 

Is God asking you to hold something more lightly so that God can surprise you? Are you willing to take the risk?

Blessings, 
Sister Lorraine
