Some Pharisees asked Jesus, “Why are your disciples picking grain on the Sabbath? They are not supposed to do that!” (Mark 2:24, CEV)
It can help to find the words to tell the truth of where you are now. If you can find the courage to name ‘here’ – especially in the place where you do not wish to be – it can help you be there. Padraig O Tuama
Some people are very ready to tell others what to do. Many of those voices are our own, inside our own heads addressed to ourselves. There are imperatives but there are also invitations. Which is the Christian faith recognised by? What do I hear from the Father?
