Critical Contemplation…

“We can too easily become identified with goodness–feel that we are ‘the enlightened ones’.

We cease to ask questions about what we are doing, how we are doing it,

whether it might be done another way.

 Not only must we question ourselves;

we must create the kind of atmosphere that invites others

to question us and to give us feedback on

how they perceive and hear and experience us.”

Elizabeth O’Connor

  1. Needful but not easy, particularly inviting others to question what or how we do what we do. Help us, Lord, to be receptive to critical contemplation. I love the majestic waterfall. It reminds me of the river of God moving in and through us. Growth can be seen as a result.
