“Staying in the Moment”

April 24-Acts 5:34-42; Jn. 6:1-15

Money is tight, very tight–donations are down, very down–but instead of worrying about money I stay in the moment. I keep on doing what I do. I feed, and I provide what clothing I can, and I provide my time. I do not look back–the moment–is all there is, and I know that “all will be well.” One guy was angry as hell with me tonight because I would not give him a dollar; another was not happy because I would not let him “stay all night”; But that is the way it goes. I saw forty people, all desperately needy, all suffering in one form or another, and I am there for the moment.  I am not their parent, nor am I their Saviour, but I am their friend who walks with them in the moment. Staying in the moment keeps me sane, and keeps me centered.  I spent most of day working on office stuff, some outreach, sermon preparation, always in the moment. Deo Gratis! Thanks be to God!
