Sharing for the Journeysis-ellen-avatar

We find ourselves in a time of WAITING just now, and it begins to grow heavy. We await a new leader for this Diocese; we know not what to expect, but we each have our hopes for the ‘right’ person to come and lead us forward for the Church of West Virginia. But, in our WAITING, let’s not miss out on THE PRESENT MOMENT! Here’s a brief reflection on the importance of the PRESENT MOMENT in our lives, especially right now.


Reflection by Janusz Korczak

A plea on behalf of respect for the here and now, for today: How can we assure a child’s life in the future if we have not yet learned how to live consciously and responsibly in the present? Do not trample, hold in contempt, or sell the future into bondage. Do not stifle it, rush, or force it. Respect every single moment, as it will pass and will never again be repeated. After all, when tomorrow finally does arrive, we start waiting for the next tomorrow.
