Being Rare in Our World, Rev. Kent Matthies

May Sarton asks, “How rare in our world to sit absolutely still for even an hour!” Stop everything and be still. Even for a moment. Ok, everything won’t stop. Your heart will continue to pump. Your lungs will continue to breathe. But the simple and radical act of stilling your body, as much as possible, can change the way you perceive the moment, the day and your life. With stillness we experience what Emerson meant when he said, “The days themselves are gods. That is, everything is divine.”
