Lent Practices - Finding a Quiet Place













"And when you come before God, don't turn that into a theatrical production either. All these people making a regular show out of their prayers, hoping for stardom! Do you think God sits in a box seat?
 6"Here's what I want you to do: Find a quiet, secluded place so you won't be tempted to role-play before God. Just be there as simply and honestly as you can manage. The focus will shift from you to God, and you will begin to sense his grace."
 - Matthew 6 - The Message
Turn your speakers on, log out of Facebook, Twitter and I don't know what else-er and spend just 90 seconds with The Quiet Place Project. Thank you to Jesuit Post for this one.

  1. peace and quiet are so valuable, always inspiring to find that quiet moment in a quiet place (preferably surrounded by nature)

  2. Thank you for passing it on... I do find it takes time for me to settle, but The Quiet Place Project was a great help -- and a focus on how rushed about small things I often am.

Welcome to my blog. I always love receiving comments; do feel free. If you're visiting from the A-Z challenge (or even if you're not!) could I thank you for your patience in using the dreaded captcha verification thingy. It's a pain, I know, but I've had problems with spam in the past and would rather keep Greenpatches as a junk-free zone.
