Some centering thoughts

  • There is a seed--spark--inner light of God within each of us, whatever our faith tradition or lack of one.
  •  “the human spirit is the candle of the Lord illuminating all our innermost parts” (Proverbs 20:27). 
  • “God is love.”
  • “God is the center of everything and the circumference of nothing.”  (From a Medieval theologian)
These thoughts  give focus for:  prayers of thanks--sighs  and actions for people in need--finding God in nature--and appreciating beauty,  They give context when praying for sick and grieving people, finding hope in seemingly hopeless conditions, praying for people in distress, and fill in the blanks__________.
Again, a favorite centering prayer: “Lord Jesus Christ you are the light of the world.  Fill my mind with your peace and my heart with your love.”
