“We have waited in silence on your loving-kindness, O God, *
in the midst of your temple.”
Psalm 48, Tuesday Lent One, Evening Prayer, the Daily Office Book, Year One
Sit. Be silent. Enter into your body temple, into the midst of it, the sanctuary of your heart, and accept the love which originates with God. Nurture your compassion as God’s image within you, in whose image you are made, so to nurture yourself and the world around you. The real change we seek in life is through the transformation of God’s love, which unfolds from the inside out. Sit. Be silent and listen to compassion’s unfolding flower.
