Ordinary Time

       I am teaching a class on spiritual disciplines at a local university.  I am looking forward to journeying with 13 young women and men as they learn more about prayer and what it means to grow closer to God.  I am so thankful for the gift of being part of our community that has taught me the importance of faithfulness to prayer.   My life has been changed by all the opportunities I have been given to grow closer to the One I love.  I have also learned that it is in the ordinariness of daily life that change and transformation happens.  Sure there are mountaintop moments but these usually don't last.  It is in the ordinariness of daily life that extraordinary things happen.  Don't miss these ordinary moments.  Live into them and offer thanks to God!
