At home I have a "to do" list on my computer. (I can still access it now, but I don't need it. Yippee!) I have a "to do" list in meetings. I have a "to do" list at home. And when I finish my "to do's" I celebrate with "ta da's!" My middle class world is build on accomplishment and my ancient-future faith is founded on "to be", being in the moment, who and what God asks. And it never fails to surprise me how well "to be" works, when I let it.
Last night we practiced "being" as a team with dinner and no agenda, but conversation and being together. Today we'll practice "being." as we visit a United Methodist Church that celebrates and worships from another cultural perspective. (Southern, African American, protestant, rural...) And we'll have fun just being with them and in the moment.
