Mindful

What is worship? We celebrate and worship every Sunday morning, normally at 9:00 & 10:30 am in room 300 at Rock Canyon High School. It’s a wondrous gathering of music, prayer, hearing God’s word, sharing, fellowship, coffee and snacks and kids and adults.

But is that all that worship is?

On January 17th, a woman who perhaps worshipped in a different way passed away. The poet, Mary Oliver. I’ll let you read about her and her work on your own. But here is a poem that has spoken to me for a number of years. May reading it be a time of worship for you.

We’ll be looking for you – preferably in person – tomorrow at 9:00 or 10:30 am!

Grace be with you,

Vikki

Mindful

Every day

 I see or hear

   something

     that more or less


kills me

  with delight,

    that leaves me

      like a needle


in the haystack

  of light.

    It is what I was born for—

     to look, to listen,


to lose myself

  inside this soft world –

    to instruct myself

      over and over


in joy,

  and acclamation.

    Nor am I talking

      about the exceptional,


the fearful, the dreadful,

  the very extravagant –

    but of the ordinary,

      the common, the very drab,


the daily presentations.

  Oh, good scholar,

    I say to myself,

      how can you help


but grow wise

  with such teachings

    as these—

      the untrimmable light


of the world,

  the ocean’s shine,

    the prayers that are made

      out of grass?

-- Mary Oliver

Appreciating the time and energy you put into your blog and detailed information you present.
It's great to come across a blog every once in a while that isn't the same outdated rehashed information.
Excellent read! I've bookmarked your site and I'm adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.

Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established
blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal
but I can figure things out pretty quick.
I'm thinking about creating my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you
have any ideas or suggestions? Cheers
