It is Monday morning. Many of us who practice interim ministry may be taking a moment to reflect on the congregation we are currently serving, a pause between the ending of one week and the beginning of another. Is this a time to plan our activity and schedule for the coming week? How will our energy be used? Will we be reactive to whatever surfaced over the weekend? Or is this moment, this pause to be still, a time to allow our own energy to be replenished? May we find moments between each week, moments each day to be still, to build within a space where we can simply be ourselves, and where we may we be at peace. In the midst of activity, demands, stress, may you know the grace and joy of a moment claimed for yourself alone. You are of great value and you bring the gift of yourself, and that is the most important thing to know today.
