Our own work to do

Please share with your network!

Each of us has her/her own work in the world, work made meaningful by our intention and consent. It may be grand work on the order of Bach; it could be simple, invisible work — lowly by the standards of the world. Yet, all are equal in the eyes of God. All can be made into a Sacrament of the Present Moment, transmitting goodness, peace, and caring for those around us and bringing fulfillment to our hearts. We all have a place in the great mosaic called the Body of Christ.
