"Story Lady"

Tuesday, February 04, 2014

from Steven Charleston:


God is in the kitchen, sitting quietly over a cup of coffee. God is on the street corner, waiting for the light to change. God is at the bar, watching the game on tv. God is in the beauty shop, listening to the latest stories. There is no place where we are that God is not. No moment when we cannot turn to find God available. We build our sanctuaries more for ourselves than for our Maker, who calls the whole creation home, and moves with ease among us, as ordinary as sunlight, as close as a whisper, right where you would hope to find the holy, just there beside you.
