- Sunday March 5: Look Twice
- The disciples looked, heard and retreated in fear from the unknown. When touched by love, and invited to look again, they were able to witness Christ. Where are you being called to ‘look twice’ to find the love that dances at the heart of things?

“They saw only Jesus”. Yet the apostles carried that moment of divine presence as they accompanied Jesus down the mountain and into daily life. There are times in our communal silence when we become aware of a Presence that we often fail to notice in the day to day. However, like the apostles, we are invited to recognize that Presence among us – not as something to cling to, but as something that gives us the grace to see that Presence in all creation, in the ordinary moments of our lives.
Sunday March 5: Look Twice
Where am I being called to “look twice” to find the love that dances at the heart of all things? When hurt or afraid I retreat to my heart. Bold and adventurous live in the mind. Can my centering prayer practice make dance partners of fear and boldness, following God’s lead as the Primary Partner? Can an adventuresome love help me dance with my hurts and see God in all things? I will take this image of ternion dancing with me this week in my sits. <3 linda
