I want you to recall the probing words I spoke to Job, where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation? Everything that exists since the beginning of time is a witness and testimony of my glory. You are never alone for I am always with you. The shining stars lit at night and hidden from view during the noonday sun reveals my omnipotent handiwork. The wildflower in the countryside standing alone sings praise in silence to the everlasting creator… Read more

In Mindful Christianity, we are learning how to pay attention to what we are thinking to settle and quiet the mind down.

Do not let your hearts be troubled for I will never leave or forsake you. Didn’t I tell you that in the world you would face unbelievable struggles and hardship? Sorrow, pain, and suffering even death, is the inevitable outcome of life. You can try to avoid and control them as much as you like, but your best-laid plans are like holding on to smoke in the air.

When we speak of mindfulness in Christianity, we talk about the discipline of being fully aware of our experience living in the present moment. The practice of mindfulness helps us recognize how much of our time is lost living in the past and the future. In fact, very little time is spent living in the present moment. In the Christian realm to live mindfully, Richard Rohr describes it as living in the naked now. Rohr calls it the naked now… Read more
