Need Faith?

Problems.  We all have them and we all cause them.  Or at least I do.  I wish I could say I’m a great problem solver, but I’m not.  I’ve learned, however, three things that won’t work: shout at them, ignore them, or try to hide them. The Bible (or so it seems to me) is filled with momentous problems and their sometimes practical, sometimes improbable, solutions.  In times of duress or needless magnification of everyday challenges, I need to recall faith’s history.  After all, David conquered Goliath, Daniel outlasted the lions, Jacob eventually married Rachel (staying power in adversity!), and God sent a rainbow.  Faith is positive untamed creativity waiting for us to ask.

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.
