We spend most of our lives working – caring for family, earning a living, devoting time to our homes’ upkeep. This mini-retreat helps us to bring new meaning to what we do without thinking…the countless tasks that add up to a meaningful life. We’ll discuss Marge Piercy’s To Be of Use, and we’ll be challenged by Ron Padgett in Think and Do – a little jewel of a poem aimed at those of us who tend to run through life!
David Budbill urges us to grab onto the “Shining Moment in the Now” and, with God’s help, we’ll get better at that together. Make this time for reflecting on human endeavor in many forms into a gift of integration of the parts of ourselves that we take for granted, or in which we neglect God’s presence.
