Reflection for the Week - September 3

Looking for contact with God can sometimes seem to be an arduous task. Often we expect something direct – a clear pathway opening up between God and us, like the wrestling Jacob, the law receiving Moses, or the barren Sarah, yet are disappointed when this does not usually take place. Perhaps, our vision would improve if we begin to reflect on the indirect ways in which God, through nature, the trustworthy other, and Scripture, can likely create conduits that contribute to bridging the distance that we may be experiencing. Being attuned to the manifestation of God through these configurations opens us up to new ways of seeing and perceiving the multifarious touching points between us and the great and mysterious I Am.
