One thing is needed

Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.                    Martha, Martha, you are worried                   and distracted by many things;          there is need of only one thing.                            —Luke 10.41-42

There will be the clutter and clatter of pans, the rumble and jumble of traffic and trains, the brambles of papers and lists and calls, the beaten paths, the errands, the chores.

You don't have to rattle and run with them. You can do one thing at a time.

You can stop and sit at the feet of the moment, pay reverent attention to whatever it is, and listen to the silence beneath the hum, and simply be in the the presence of the presence.

In all your doing that you surely must do, you still can just be. And your being will become what you do.

In the stillness within the action sits the Beloved who is not distracted with many things, but only wants to sit awhile with you.

                           Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve
