A Wiser Alternative

by Sr Nunother  

I’m a very cautious person. No doubt about it. Last evening, as I prayed alone in our church, I walked. As I walked, I looked down and discovered a wonderful mosaic owl, peering up at me from the processional floor. The owl (in my mind) spoke one word: wisdom. It started me thinking. I proceed with caution. When attentiveness to possible danger, minimizing risk, and carefulness of action are my central focus, I lose my connection with God and other people. But what if I were to proceed with wisdom? According to James 3:17, wisdom is peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, and without partiality and hypocrisy. Seems to me the safer way to live.

About Sr. Nun Other

May 16, 2012, completed my 30th year as a Sister. It was both a milestone and just another day in an interesting journey. Some of those thirty years included singing with Gloriae Dei Cantores, marching in Spirit of America band, and serving on our Sisters Council. As a monastic, I live surrounded by beauty and within a frame work of opportunity and possibility. I'm sixty-four (much to my surprise) and extremely grateful for my life as a sister - past, present, and future.
