The Pork Chop

Every writer of spirituality recommends staying attuned to God, listening for God’s voice, seeing God in everything and everyone. I’m sure you’ve tried this. Does it work? Well, when it does, it’s definitely worth the effort. Have you ever tried “doing” your day with God? “God, I’m brushing my teeth.” “God, I’m heading toward the car.” “God, I’m opening the oven door to see whether the cookies are done.” “God, I’m sitting here to pray Evening Prayer.” I was using this technique the other day when I was eating dinner. “God, this pork chop is cooked perfectly. It tastes wonderful. I hope you’re enjoying it as much as I am.” Oops! “Sorry, Jesus, you’re Jewish. You don’t eat pork chops.”
