We arrived at church for Mass too early. Rather than finding another church, we decided to sit at one of the church’s picnic tables and talk about our spiritual lives. As we talked about finding God in little events, a hawk came to rest on a nearby fence, his presence proving the point. Perhaps as parishioners started to arrive, they may have wondered what we were doing. A picnic that early in the morning? No food or tablecloth? What they couldn’t see was an opportunity to find God anywhere, anytime.
When you have odd moments or times of waiting, do you give that time to God?
