We begin a new lesson today that will take several weeks. We begin with Jesus’ parable about a man who invited a bunch of people to the party of their lives, only to have them miss this golden opportunity because of pragmatic concerns in their lives. Unexamined lives led them to hurried, harried lives that couldn’t see opportunity when it was handed to them.
So it is when we miss reading to our children, miss seeing the mystery and beauty in our jobs, our people, our city, and the rocks and tree that travel on this planet with us.
This lesson is about why we drive ourselves into the blinding toxicity of hurry, and what we can do to step back from the impulses that push us there.
Have a listen,
