Today’s Reflection

PEOPLE WHO ENGAGE IN PRAYER PRACTICES naturally begin to slow down and look around them, see and appreciate their community and those in it. They become curious about one another and about God. They also have the space to begin to notice how God is working in them; their desire to follow these leadings grows.
