I recently read an article regarding activism and missionaries. It equally applies to religious life.
It speaks of the importance of finding time in our lives for silence, stillness, prayer and Sabbath space.
How often we value our day or our week by what we accomplished. How often we focus more on doing than on being. We focus more on what we are doing for God than on what God is doing for and in us.
It was a good reminder for me that both doing and being are important parts of life and I need to make space for both.
