Day 1- Listening

Adam Gowen invites us to listen to what the rest of creation is declaring about our Creator, and what our Creator is telling us through creation.

Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!

Psalm 46:10

 

Miriam-Rose Ungunmerr is an Aboriginal Leader and inspiring Christian thinker. She suggests that the practice of didirri (deep listening/contemplation) is restorative and brings peace. As we approach this scripture, and many like it, I am inspired to listen to what the rest of creation is speaking about our Creator, and what our Creator is speaking through the rest of creation. Come sit, and listen, quieten yourself and the things that are vying for your attention. Be still. Take time. Breathe.

 


Take Action

Take action by sitting still somewhere and listening. Listen to the sounds of your world. Allow your spirit to awaken to the things the Creator and the rest of creation are telling you. Focus on stillness, listen intently, and push yourself to ignore time.
