Happy September, friends. I hope this finds you well.
I’m really excited for our next series of episodes, exploring Questions Jesus Asked. This series was suggested by my dear Spiritual Companion, Tina Lamb. (You may remember that Tina brought us the Sunday poems during the first pandemic year.)
In this first episode we explore John 1:35-39, When John the Baptist’s disciples follow Jesus, and Jesus asks them “What are you seeking?”
Can you allow Jesus to ask you, “What are you seeking?”
Thank you so much for inviting me into your precious moments of meditation. It is an honour to be here with you.
My children have a delightful party piece where they imitate me, my eyes half closed and my dreamiest meditation voice crooning “may you open your heart to the peaceful love of God”… then abruptly turn around to shout in a very angry voice “BOYS!! SHUT!! UP!! I’M RECORDING!!!”
This is not entirely accurate. “Shut up” is not something I generally say to anyone… 😆 However, there was a very animated online game going on downstairs whilst I recorded this (aghhh!) and while I’ve managed to edit most of the outbursts out of the background, there may be one or two which escaped. May they amuse you. And may your meditation be such that ambient noises do not ruffle you. May we grow together!
Contemplative at Home offers guided meditative prayer – space to slow down and listen to the truth that is being born out of God’s love for you today – drawing on Ignatian spirituality and at times, Lectio Divina.
