First Steps – June 27, 2022

A political season awaits!  In a few months, there will be a bombardment of mailings, commercials, and who knows what else.  Though I hope every person will be informed and participate in the elections by voting, the political seasons normally bring out the worst in people. For this reason, consider this advice from Francis de Sales:
     In the addition to a mental solitude to which you can retreat even in the middle of a crowd, learn to love actual physical solitude.  There is no need to go out into the desert.  Simply spend some quiet time alone in your room, or in a garden, or some other place.  There you can think holy thoughts or do a little spiritual reading.  One of the great bishops said, ‘I walk alone on the beach at sunset.  I use such recreation to refresh myself and shake off a little of my ordinary troubles.’
     Our Lord received a glowing report from the apostles about how they had preached and what a great ministry they had done.  Then he said to them, ‘Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest’ (Mark 6:31).
When advertisements and communication turn dark, find a place of retreat, a place of solitude. There, you can shake off a little of your ordinary troubles.

This Week’s Readings:
*Monday – 1 Thessalonians 5
*Tuesday – 2 Thessalonians 1

*Guidance for those seeking to find their way.
*Continued Growth Inside and Outside the Walls of St. Paul UMC.

“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need and thank him for all he has done.” – Philippians 4:6
